“My Filipino Mom taught me how to make this traditional dish following the recipe her mother taught her. And though I've made a couple of changes, I guarantee they're Mom-approved. 'Lolah' is 'Grandma' in the Philippines, in case you were wondering. Serve over steamed rice.” - by foodelicious
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat until oil is shimmering. Cook garlic in oil for no more than 30 seconds. Add all of the chicken to the pot; cook, stirring frequently, until chicken is white all over. Do not brown.
- Pour in soy sauce, vinegar, and water, and add the pickling spice. Make sure the spice ball is submerged. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, and place lid on pot so that some steam can escape. Simmer for 1 hour, or until chicken is very tender.

"I knew when i looked over the recipe that i would like this one and i was right. It was really good! It was the first time i used pickling seasoning. I thought it gave it a good flavor. I did however ..." See moreend up adding a lil bit of brown sugar towards the end to take the vinegar-y taste down a notch. I will definitely make this version again."
