Recipe Information
This is usually served with steamed rice


Serves/Makes:4 servings

  • 2 lbs (.9 kg). chicken, cut into serving-size pieces
  • 6 tbsp (90 ml) red cane vinegar
  • 6 tbsp (90 ml) soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) butter
  • 1 tsp (5 ml). whole peppercorns
  • 1 tsp (5 ml). brown sugar
  • a piece of laurel leaf
  • Mix all ingredients well (except the chicken) in a shallow pan.
  • Arrange the chicken pieces on the pan and cover.
  • Simmer until the chicken is nearly done.
  • Turn the chicken once in a while to make sure all sides have absorbed the other ingredients.
  • Remove the cover and let simmer until the sauce is reduced.
  • The chicken will be done when it has a rich brown color.
You can substitute honey for the brown sugar to make it more tasty, and if you don't want to use butter, you can use margarine instead.
