Ingredients:  
1 Chicken (cut up) or use just the parts you like, equivalent to 1 chicken
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground pepper
1/4 tsp. sugar
3 T. vinegar
1 bay leaf
2 T. soy sauce
5 cloves garlic (chopped very small)

Directions:
Directions:
Mix all ingredients except the chicken in a pot with a good lid. Add the chicken a piece at a time, making sure each piece is partly covered by the mixture. Marinate the chicken for one hour (can be done overnight or for a day, in the fridge, for extra flavor). Cover the pot. Turn the heat on at a low setting. Cook for 1 1/2 hours - or until chicken is soft and tender.

Serve with rice and any vegetable you like. Sometimes we peel and cut up potatoes to cook with the chicken.

This dish can be made with pork, but we have always used chicken.
