This Filipino chicken dish is simple to make and absolutely delicious! Chicken is simmered in soy sauce and vinegar then barbecued.
Something else. This is a flavourful dish with a garlicy-tangy sauce. I substituted brown sugar for the honey and it came out fine. Some suggestions: Trim the fat from the chicken, otherwise the sauce gets a little oily. When returning the mixture to a boil, do not cover the saucepan - allow the sauce to evaporate until it is reduced to about half its original volume. The sauce will have a glaze-like consistency. I don't have a grill, so I quick-pan-fried the chicken in a little oil and minced garlic - just enough to make the outside crisp. Tasty! - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Decreased soy sauce to 1 cup, increased water to 2 cups, and used rice vinegar. Very unique but even the picky 11-yr old son ejoys this dish. - 29 Sep 2008
My family absolutely loves this dish! Every time I tell them I am cooking and ask them what they want, this is it! I did however change the recipe a little because my mum thought it was a little bit salty. Instead of using the whole 1 1/2 cups of normal soy sauce I substituted half of it for sweet soy. This is a weekly recipe now! Yummy!! - 01 Oct 2014
