"This is a very tasty and easy-to-make Filipino chicken dish made with soy sauce, garlic, and vinegar. I can just as easily double or triple the chicken in this recipe to serve guests at a party. Serve over rice with just a little of the sauce (not too much)."

This recipe was great! By accident, I overcooked the chicken so it was little on the dry side but still very good. Next time, I'll just have to keep a better eye on the cooking time and all wi...
