You Will Need

* 1 whole chicken * 3 Tbsp white vinegar * 3 1⁄3 fl oz soy sauce * fresh black pepper * 2 tsp brown sugar * 5 garlic cloves, minced * 3 bay leaves * salt to taste * 17 fl oz chicken stock * 1 sharp knife * 1 cutting board * 1 mixing bowl * 1 spoon * 1 large pot with a lid

Step 1:

Prepare the ingredients Cut the whole chicken into serving pieces of thighs, breasts and wings.

Step 2:

Make the marinade Thoroughly combine all the ingredients in a bowl except for the chicken and stock. When it is mixed together well, place the chicken pieces in it. Cover the bowl and allow this to marinate for 1-3 hours. This will enable all the juices to be embedded into the chicken, making it more tender as well as giving it a deeper taste.

Step 3:

Cook the meal Put the stove on a high heat. Then place the chicken with all the marinade and the stock into the pot and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover the pan and simmer for 30 minutes.

Step 4:

Finish cooking Uncover the pan and allow it to simmer very gently for an additional 15 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated and the chicken is lightly brown.
