OK, that name sound odd, but I assure you that I am not putting syrup on my chicken. I will say that the "caramel" sauce on this Asian inspired dish is a bit gooey and "salty, sweet". The main ingredient is dark soy sauce which is different then your standard water soy. Dark soy is aged longer than standards soy sauce with molasses added at the end of processing which makes it almost black in color. It's available in most Asian markets but may be hard to find in your local grocery store.
The reason why I love this dish is because it's so easy to make after work and the chicken always comes out real tender. The recipe calls for boneless chicken thigh and I would use breasts or anything with a bone. You can serve this with some fluffy jasmine or basmati rice and some greens. I usually use simple buttered green beans because I love them so much. It could be equally as good with some spinach, baby bok-choy or even matchstick carrots. The recipe below is good for 4-6 people. You can easily cut this in half if you want less.
