Servings: 4 people
  • 1 white onion sliced
  • 8 chicken thighs skinless and boneless
  • cilantro for garnish
  • green onions for garnish
  • 1 1/3 cups soy sauce
  • 2/3 cup white distilled vinegar
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • red cayenne pepper to taste
  • 1 can coconut milk
  1. Add minced garlic and sliced onions in pot with olive oil over medium heat. Cook until soft.

  2. Rinse chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Place in pot over medium high heat with olive oil. Brown the chicken on all sides.

  3. Add in coconut milk, soy sauce, vinegar, pepper and garlic. Do not add any salt into the recipe, as the soy sauce is enough.

  4. Bring to a simmer and reduce the heat to low. Cover continuing to simmer for 50 minutes. Turn the heat to medium-high for another 10 minutes.

  5. Serve over rice and garnish with green onions and cilantro. I also add a dash of red cayenne pepper at the end as well. Enjoy!
