In addition to his milk intolerance, my little guy’s belly also can’t handle soy. I stumbled upon Coconut Aminoes while I was visiting our local health store, and was excited to learn that they are a great substitute for soy sauce. The flavor did not disappoint, and in fact my husband couldn’t even tell the difference. If you’re looking for a good substitute for soy sauce or just want to give coconut aminoes a try, you can order them right here.
Soy-Free Terriyaki Chicken
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons coconut aminoes
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon ginger (ground or fresh will work. I actually prefer more ginger in this, but it’s a bit too much for my toddler)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
8 bone-in, chicken thighs (I prefer skinless for this recipe)
Combine your first 6 ingredients in a ziploc bag or glass dish. Add your chicken, coat them well with the sauce, and marinate overnight.
This is great served with a side of white rice with pineapple and steamed sugar snap peas.
