2-1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1- to 1-1/2-inch pieces
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce

  3. Cook on low for 2 to 2-1/2 hours.
  4. Remove chicken with slotted spoon and keep warm.
  5. Mix water and cornstarch in small bowl; stir into honey ginger sauce in slow cooker pot. Cover and set slow cooker on low for 15 minutes.

  7. Serve with rice or vegetables.


Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
