This is my grandmother's recipe from the Philippines. I used to ask my mom to make it all the time, when I learned how, I made it all the time! Its very simple too!

Awesome dish, my filapina friend, made this dish for me, I loved it so much that she made it again the next day, so that I could see how she did it. I'm so lucky. This recipe is the closest one to her's that I could find on the site. I do add a little more brown sugar for a slightly sweeter version. I make this often, sometimes I use the whole chicken cutup, its also good with legs, wings and thighs, I have also made it using pork tenderloin. Awesome recipe, so quick and easy to make. The longer you let the sauce sit, the thicker it gets. The sweet, soya, vinegar and garlic sauce is out of this world, all the flavors blend beautifully together to create a memorable treat. This is perfect served over steamed jasmine rice with sliced tomatoes and green onions. Thanks so much for sharing a recipe, that has gone into my keeper box.
