1 whole chicken (cut into eighths)
1 whole garlic (chopped)
Olive oil or vegetable/corn oil
1 tsp ground, black pepper
4 whole black pepper cloves
3 dried bay leaves
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup vinegar
**7up/sprite- (optional) but 1/4 or more to taste
**whole lemon (cut into 4)
Wash your chicken very well. We recommend using the lemon (in ingredients)to rub all over the chicken parts and rub salt into it as well.
Heat oil and add all of the garlic, and cook until garlic is lightly browned. Add chicken and sauté until the chicken is beginning to tenderize.
Add ground, black pepper, whole, black pepper cloves, soy sauce, and vinegar, and let simmer for 25-35 mins Or until chicken is done. Add vinegar and soy sauce to taste. Add 7up to taste. For more zing you can add sliced onions, jalapenos, more garlic and/or 2 tsp slices of thinly sliced fresh ginger root.
