Lunch and Dinner all done

Okay for lunch was the top Sweet and Sour Pork, homemade of course.
I made regular sweet and sour sauce with no ketchup.

For dinner is the above Shoyu Chicken now it will rest until dinner time.
Then Hula Class tonight with Papa Kiele.

Here is my Shoyu Chicken Recipe


 4 chicken thighs and  4 chicken Legs

 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth

 1 cups low-sodium soy sauce or  Aloha Shoyu

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup mirin

2 Tablespoons of Oyster Sauce

4 medium garlic cloves, smashed and peeled

1/2 of a Sweet Onion

2 Tablespoons of Honey
1-inch piece ginger, sliced 1/2-inch thick and smashed

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

5 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in 5 tablespoons water

Thinly sliced green onions, for garnish


Combine all ingredients except cornstarch and green onions in a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to low and simmer, covered, turning occasionally, until chicken is tender, about 30 to 35 minutes more.

Bring sauce to a boil, skim off excess fat, and cook until reduced slightly, about 10 minutes. Whisk in cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, add chicken, turn to coat, and serve chicken with sauce and sliced green onions.

Serve with Brown Rice Medley.   (My medley is Brown Rice I get the Brown Rice that is a little more expensive Sukoyaka Gen Mai Brown rice)  Most of the brown husk is removed still good for you though)
