Simple Soy Sauce Chicken

Recipe by  

"My boys always begged for this chicken. It literally falls off the bones and the sauce gives a rich flavor to the rice. Made with pantry staples, it's easy to throw together, too! Use low-sodium soy sauce if you're sensitive to salt. My family prefers chicken thighs but any pieces will work. Skin the chicken pieces if preferred. A zesty Italian dressing works best."

Super easy to make and very tasty. I will use this one again. The sauce will make a good dipping sauce for Chinese dumplings and pot stickers.

I loved the simplicity and the fact that I had nearly everything on hand. I added a bit of apple cider vinegar and olive oil to make up for a slight shortage on the Italian dressing. I also substituted diced frozen chicken breast tenders as that was what I had available. Because of the tenders, I reduced cooking time by about 10 minutes. My family loved this meal and I will definitely be making it again.

I only had the olive gardens Italian dressing but i tried out anyway with fresh chopped onion. The sauce is phenomenal and i let flavors marry before cooking, but i enjoyed this recipe. Single and easy just like i like it!

Great recipe, I did a few alterations though. I pulled apart a rotisserie chicken and made double the sauce. I minced a fresh onion instead of the dried onion. (mainly because that's all I had) I would use a little less soy sauce next time because it was a little overwhelming for my tastes. Would be great with a stir fry mix of veggies and some peanuts. Overall great recipe.
