The soy sauce adds sprint, flavor, and gives that oriental flavor that is loved so much. Before starting, here is a piece of advice that will be very useful especially if you are not very familiar with this ingredient: as always when you use soy sauce – which is already very tasty – you have to pay close attention to the amount of salt you add to the preparation.

Soy chicken with the classic recipe

For this recipe you will need the following ingredients.

  • 500 g of chicken.
  • 60ml of soy sauce.
  • 30 g of acacia honey.
  1. To prepare this quick and easy recipe, you can choose whether to start with the whole breast and cut it yourself, or for a quicker solution, you can buy the chicken nuggets already cut.
  2. Start the marinade. In a bowl put the soy sauce, the honey (we recommend the acacia one as it does not have a strong taste that could cover the other flavours) and the chicken. Marinate for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  3. After that, take a non-stick pan and pour a drizzle of oil. Pour the marinated chicken and soy-honey dressing into the pan.
  4. Cook for 10 minutes , until the liquid has dried and the chicken has become caramelized. If your sauce is consumed before 10 minutes, add a little more soy sauce.


Chicken with soy and vegetables is a delicious second course that can be kept in the refrigerator for about 2-3 days in a container with an airtight lid. We do not recommend freezing in the freezer.

If you want to try another quick but equally tasty second course, we recommend the chicken salad .
