Simple Soy Sauce Chicken


"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."

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 su...

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 a...

Awesome and easy. I'll make this again.

Delicious! Did not use mushrooms. Served mixed with brown rice and broccoli.

I really loved this! I used a homemade Italian style dressing and boneless skinless chicken thighs. I used my slow cooker (a couple hours on high and a few more on low) and the chicken just fe...

Perfect lazy night dinner. Flavorful and easyyy.

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) ...
