    This was amazing. I let this marinate close to 14 hours. The taste is mildly salty and sweet. I use part of the ingredients from the marination in the rice. 10/10

    I went to a Filipino restaurant and was disappointed with the main dishes so I had to try making it myself. Glad I did use this recipe and it came out tasting better than the restaurant yet not as good as I had in the Philippines. I let the chicken marinate overnight. What I like about Filipino dishes, nothing gets thrown out and you just keep adding to the pan. There was more chicken but I ate it before thinking about taking the picture.

    Even perfect for a smaller amt of chicken. Used regular vinegar instead of white, gave a hearty flavor. 👍🏽

    This was so easy and absolutely delicious! Definitely does not need the extra salt because of soy sauce.

    I had never heard of this dish before, which is a shame because it is delicous. I did not add extra salt, and after reading the comments it seems like many other people did not either. The soy sauce is salty enough. But it is perfectly savory and very tender. I served over rice. I will definitely make this dish again.

    I did not have soy sauce so I used Worcestershire sauce. I also added a little BBQ spice and Nando’s lemon and herb sauce.

    The chicken was delicious and full of flavor. I used other's tips and omitted the salt. I also used the low sodium soy sauce. My family really enjoyed the chicken and we will make this dish again.

    Was very good. I marinated the chicken for two days just to prep ahead.

    Amazing! Next time I’ll use bone in chicken instead of tenderloins; it’s just what I had in stock at the moment so it required less time to cook. HOWEVER it still hit the spot!

    It was really good but I only had chicken breasts and it didn’t come out as good as when I’ve made it w bone-in chicken. Ate it with Basmati rice. I’ll def be making it again.
