– 1/4 cup 65 ml soy sauce – 1/2 cup 125 ml white Filipino cane vinegar, or distilled white vinegar – 6-8 cloves garlic smashed with the side of a knife and peeled – 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns – 2 bay leaves – 6 skin-on bone-in chicken thighs

Step 1

Place the soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, black peppercorns, and bay leaves in a large, nonreactive sauté pan, and then nestle the chicken thighs, skin side down, into the pan.

Bring the liquid to a boil over high heat, and then cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes. Turn the chicken over, and then cover and simmer for another 10 minutes.
