Soy sauce chicken is a traditional Cantonese cuisine dish made of chicken cooked with soy sauce. It is considered as a siu mei dish in Hong Kong.[1]

The strong flavour of soy sauce usually covers up the taste of chicken. Another Cantonese dish white cut chicken, often served with soy sauce dip, is more savoured for the taste of the meat, where the freshness of the chicken is noticeable.

Singapore's Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle, the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world, specializes in this dish and offers it for the equivalent of $2 USD.[2]
