  1. Cook chicken in mixture of 1 Tbsp. soy sauce and 2 cups water in covered saucepan 20 to 25 minutes, or until no longer pink in center; cool. Remove skin and bones; shred meat with fingers.
  2. Place both types of cream cheese in large bowl. Stir in 2 Tbsp. soy sauce and milk, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until smooth. Mix in chicken and green onions.
  3. Place cilantro, parsley, almonds, oil, garlic, lemon peel and remaining 1 Tbsp. soy sauce in food processor bowl; cover and process until coarsely pureed.
  4. Line 4-1/2 x 8-1/2-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap, extending wrap 3 to 4 inches past edges of pan. Arrange green onion brush and cilantro leaves on plastic wrap. Spread about 1/3 of cream cheese mixture to cover garnish and bottom of pan. On top of cream cheese mixture evenly spread about 1/2 of cilantro mixture, then 1/3 of cream cheese mixture, red peppers, remaining cilantro mixture and end with remaining cream cheese. Fold plastic wrap over to enclose. Refrigerate 6 hours, or overnight until well chilled.
  5. To serve, unfold plastic wrap and invert loaf onto serving platter; discard plastic wrap. Serve with crackers.


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.
