2 1/2  pounds whole chicken, cut  into serving pieces
1 1/2 whole head of garlic, finely pounded in a mortar & pestle, or minced
2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns, finely pounded in a mortar & pestle
1 cup Philippine native vinegar, coconut vinegar or Sukang Paombong 
1/2 cup Philippine soy sauce, Marca Pina or Lauriat 
2 cups fresh coconut milk or 1 can coconut milk
2 bay leaves


Put the chicken pieces in a stainless steel pot.  Add the garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, and bay leaves.  Let sit for about 15 minutes to marinate the chicken.  Add the coconut milk. Bring the pot to a boil for 5 minutes, then  cook on medium heat for 25 minutes.  Lower heat and simmer for another 15 minutes or until liquid evaporates and leaves just enough creamy sauce.

This chicken looks so good. I love spices . With the gravy, it would be so nice to eat with homemade nan also.
