1. In a bowl, combine chicken, soy sauce, garlic, onions, peppercorns, and bay leaves. Massage onto meat and place in the fridge to marinate for about 30 minutes. Drain the chicken, reserving the marinade.

2. In a pot over medium heat, heat oil. Add in the drained chicken pieces including the garlic, onions, peppercorns and bay leaves). Sear the chicken until lightly browned. Add vinegar and let it boil, uncovered and without stirring, for about 4 to 5 minutes. This is very important to cook off the acid.*

3. Add the reserved marinade, water, sugar, and oyster sauce. Bring to a boil then simmer for another 30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Taste the sauce and add salt, pepper, or sugar to taste.

4. Best served with white rice and chopped fresh tomatoes on the side!

*Don’t stir the vinegar. After adding the vinegar, don’t stir until all the acid is cooked off. Just let it simmer for a few minutes.
