  • 1 kg chicken thighs, bone-in and skin-on

  1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, combine chicken, vinegar, soy sauce, water, garlic, bay leaves, and black peppercorns.
  2. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low and let it simmer for 30 minutes, skimming off any foam that rises to the surface.
  3. Add brown sugar and stir to dissolve.
  4. Increase heat to high and let it boil for 10-15 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened, and the chicken is cooked through. Make sure to stir occasionally to avoid burning the sauce.
  5. Serve hot with rice and steamed vegetables, and enjoy!
