Also called "adobe chicken" :-)
This was a new flavor for me. It worked out very well and I would love to repeat it in the future. The sauce made rice taste unbelievably amazing.
4 chicken thighs
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 large onion
7 cloves garlic
0.75 cup rice vinegar
0.25 cup brown sugar
1/3-0.5 cup soy sauce
1 cup chicken broth
2 tsp sambal chili sauce
4 bay leaves
Slice the onions, mince the garlic.
Season thighs with salt and black pepper. Brown the chicken in the vegetable oil. Set aside on a plate.
Add the slice onion and salt lightly. Cook on medium until it turns translucent. Add the chopped garlic and cook briefly, do not brown!
Add the rice vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, sambal, broth and bay leaves.
Bring back to a simmer and return chicken thighs into it. Cover and braise meat until tender.
