    It was yummy! My family loved it! We like it saucy though, I'd double the quantity of everything for the same amount of chicken. :)

    Great recipe. Very easy and doesn’t take too long. My whole family loved it. I did it once with chicken breasts and once with legs. Just reduce the time on the chicken cooking if it is not bone in like I did, and keep cooking the sauce, but great versatile recipe

    Turned out excellent. Made a few tweaks, used brown sugar instead of white. Used balsamic vinegar. And used crushed chilli peppers.

    Wow!!! I used skinless thighs. This is so good and quick to boot! I did add onions to the mix at marinating time. I served it over brown rice cooked with peppers wow!!!

    I made last night and it was great! Added crush red pepper and sambal to the broth. I pulled the chicken out after fully cooked and reduced the sauce because it was very watery. Added cornstarch slurry and shaoxing wine and white vinegar at the end. Made this alongside some coconut milk, pinto beans, and brown rice.

    So yummy. I didn’t change anything. I marinated the chicken pieces overnight. I will try boneless chicken thighs next time.

    Don’t use whole peppercorns. You get none of the flavor and it’s just wrong when you get one in a bite. Other than that it was good, I added about a tablespoon of corn starch at the end and got a nice and thick sauce. Served with rice and roasted veggies!

    It was tasty. I added some chili flakes, peppers, parsley and half an onion to the sauce. It was really good. The source wasn't thickening so I quickened the process with cornflour.

    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.
