- 3 1/2 lbs whole chicken, quartered and cut to pieces
- 1 1/2 cups rice vinegar
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1/4 cup gluten-free soy sauce
- 12 garlic cloves or 1/4 cup chopped garlic in water
- 3 bay leaves
- 1 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup oil (olive or liquid butter)
In a large bowl combine all of the marinade ingredients. Add the chicken pieces and turn to coat in the marinade. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
In a large pot, heat 1/4 cup oil and add the chicken and marinade over high heat. Let it boil stirring occasionally.
Simmer until the marinade thickens, about 20-25 minutes. Remove bay leaf.
Serve with cooked jasmine rice and pickled mango.
