Variations for this recipe:
Today I used boneless skinless chicken breasts but you can use bone-in chicken or even chicken thighs if you prefer. If using chicken thighs adjust the cooking time to 30 minutes. Bake covered in foil for 20 minutes then uncovered for the last 10 minutes or until internal temperature of the chicken reads 165 degrees on a meat thermometer.
My tips for making this recipe:
It is not necessary to season the chicken with salt before cooking for this recipe. The soy sauce has enough acidic to bring out the flavors in the chicken.
Dredge both sides the chicken through the flour so that the sauce adheres
To do this I simply measure out a 1/4 cup of flour and a tablespoon of paprika and into a pie plate and give it a stir. If you don’t have a pie plate you can use a medium sized bowl.
Then I dip the chicken into the mixture making sure it’s evenly coated on both sides.
Dipping the chicken in the flour first will also help the chicken stay moist and paprika adds flavor so added bonus!
I serve this chicken with these Skillet Green Beans to complete an easy dinner. Shred leftover chicken add a little more sauce. Â Then serve over rice for an easy lunch the next day.
