  1. Combine the chicken, vinegar, water, sugar, soy sauce, bay leaves, crushed peppercorns, onion, and garlic in a large pot; stir and bring the mixture to a boil for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook at a simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove the chicken to a large serving platter and set aside. Increase the heat under the pot to medium and cook until the liquid reduces by about one-quarter, about 10 minutes. Season with salt; stir the coconut milk into the mixture. Cover and cook until the coconut milk appears oily, about 10 minutes. Pour the mixture over the chicken to serve.

This recipe was awesome! I de-skinned the chicken and I used half the amount of suggested vinegar and added 1 tablespoon of brown sugar instead. I didn't add salt because it is already in the so...

This did not taste like the Ginataan I am used to. Definately lacking flavor so I added some sliced jalapeno peppers and patis. Boyfriend liked it- but he's like Mikey, he'll eat anything!

Very good. Next time I would skin and defat the chicken before cooking as it ended up quite greasy. The chicken was cooked after 30 minutes, but tender after 45. The sauce was good before I...

I did not like the flavor of this dish at all. I'm Filipino so I am very familiar with the taste of both adobo and Guinataan so I was very excited to try this recipe. As others stated, it was ve...

Smells and tastes wonderful and it's easy. I de-skinned the chicken, as others recommended. Only wish I would've simmered it a bit longer because although it was perfectly done, I kept thinkin...

Delicious! Noting the many comments about this dish being oily, I used skinless chicken breasts which I cut into into pieces. I cooked for 30 minutes (others suggested longer cooking times for...
