Soy glaze is an incredible variation on soy sauce. A little sweeter and thicker, it’s an ideal substitution in recipes that call for a syrupy sauce that will cling to hearty ingredients. In this recipe, we’re coating crispy chicken cutlets in soy glaze, then serving them with a classic side of fried rice that’s infused with soy glaze, too. Mixed into the stir-fry with sesame oil and eggs, the glaze brings the ingredients of the fried rice together, adding delicious texture. And in flavor, the sweet, potent glaze is perfectly balanced by savory aromatics and earthy broccoli and cashews.
