Get healthy by making chashu using chicken breasts! Use a rice cooker (or slow cooker) to make tender and juicy chicken chashu! It tastes great with our Premium Shio Tonkotsu Ramen.

I used this marinade just on some boneless skinless chicken thighs. I marinated for an hour and then sauteed in a grill pan for a few minutes each side because I don’t have a rice cooker and I was in a hurry. It was SO GOOD! I’ll definitely make this again.
