Recipe by  Margo

“Use equal parts vinegar, soy sauce and water. The secret ingredient is cinnamon. This can also be made in the slow cooker. After browning chicken, onion and garlic, transfer to slow cooker, add the rest of the ingredients and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or 4 hours on high.”

Original recipe yields 8 servings

Directions

  1. Heat canola oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat, and pan-fry the chicken drumsticks and thighs until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken pieces, and set aside. Stir onion and garlic into the hot skillet, and cook and stir until the vegetables are browned, about 8 minutes.
  2. Pour in apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, and water; stir in bay leaves, peppercorns, and the cinnamon stick. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, scraping up and dissolving any browned flavor bits from the bottom of the pan. Return chicken pieces and any juice that has formed to the pan.
  3. Cover, reduce heat to a simmer, and simmer until the chicken is thoroughly cooked, about 45 minutes.

Turned out fantastic - followed it to a T, and could not have been more pleased with the outcome. Very easy to make and prepare side dishes while the chicken simmers. The whole family loved it, and the leftovers are delicious - I might even try to make ahead and freeze. I love that this is low carb!

This recipe was amazing, very simple to make, and a great balance of flavors. I didn't change the recipe at all.Even my picky children asked me to make it again. The next tie I make it I might try piercing the meat to get a little more flavor.
