Easy and Soft Chicken Char Siu

Easy and Soft Chicken Char Siu

It's fluffy and delicious even though it's made with chicken breasts. I made an easy chicken char siu using chicken breasts this time. It's quick and easy.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

★As long as you have chicken breasts, you are ready to go! ♪ ★
Chicken breasts
☆Soy sauce
100 ml
100 ml
50 ml
3 tablespoons


1. Here are the ingredients: Chicken breasts. There is nothing wrong with chicken on sale ♩ Poke holes both sides with a fork.
2. Next, prepare to wrap with plastic wrap. Place the chicken on the wrap, and tightly squeeze into round shapes. Cover with the wrap to prevent them from falling apart.
3. Microwave for 5 minutes.
4. In the mean time, mix the ☆ ingredients, and bring the mixture to a boil in a pot. Turn off the heat.
5. Put the microwaved chicken and the sauce into a Ziploc bag. You can put them in a Ziploc container as well. Keep the marinade at room temperature instead of putting in the fridge right away to help the chicken absorb the flavour.
6. When cooled down to room temperature, refrigerate for about half a day. It's a little bit hard when it's cold, so when you are planning to eat, warm it up or bring up to room temperature.
7. For those people who like strong taste, the flavor gets absorbed better when you slice the meat, then marinate.
8. Tips: If you are planning to slice the meat then marinate, let it sit for a little while after microwaving, and slice. If you slice it right away, it's not cooked through yet.
9. The orange topping in the picture is grated carrot.
