Why I Love This Recipe

Always a family favorite.

Ingredients You'll Need

8 – 10 pieces of chicken - DO NOT use skinless boneless
2 heads of garlic crushed
¾ - 1 cup of soy sauce
2 cups of vinegar (I mix palm, rice, white and Filipino spicy – but plain white works fine)
3 bay leaves
1 Tablespoon freshly coarse ground pepper
3 Tablespoons Patis (Filipino fish sauce – optional)
1 T pickling spice (optional)
4 oz tomato sauce (optional)


Saute chicken (skin side down) and garlic until chicken is brown, do not burn garlic.

Add all other ingredients except tomato sauce.

Bring to a boil, boil for 10 min, lower heat and simmer for 20 min.

Add tomato sauce and bring back to boil.

Simmer for 5 min and serve over white rice.
