About this recipe: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).
340ml (12 fl oz) soy sauce
340ml (12 fl oz) water
180ml (6 fl oz) vinegar
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
3 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1.5kg (3 lb) skinless, boneless chicken thighs

Preheat barbecue for high heat, and lightly oil grate.
In a large pot, mix soy sauce, water, vinegar, honey, garlic, bay leaves and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, and place the chicken into the pot. Reduce heat, cover, and cook 35 to 40 minutes.
Remove chicken, drain on kitchen roll, and set aside. Discard bay leaves. Return the mixture to a boil, and cook until reduced to about 300ml (12 fl oz).
Cook chicken on the prepared barbecue, about 5 minutes on each side, until browned and crisp. Serve with the remaining soy sauce mixture.

This recipe is amazing, chicken turns out so moist and crispy. Will definitely make it again. I used light soy sauce and half the amount, and used both thighs and drumsticks on the bone with the skin on. - 09 May 2016
