    Kikai's Kitchen's Note:

    An absolute favorite!!! When I was younger, I couldn't live a day without begging my lola (grandma) to make this all the time. Basically it's crispy fried chicken adobo. This is the only way I do fried chicken at home and It's always on my weekly menu.

      My family and I loved this. After the chicken was boiled, I added 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the sauce and continued boiling to thicken while the chicken was frying. We drizzled it over the chicken and rice, and it was great. I also loved the crisp skin without the breading!

      i followed it to the T except i used 4 lbs. of bone in chicken thighs w/ skin. i had enough sauce drench and boil the chicken in. for some reason the flavor of the sauce didn't really penetrate the meat. flavor was very subtle. so i took the left over sauce..added 1 tbs of brown sugar and boiled it till it slightly thickened. drizzled the sauce over the crispy chicken. family enjoyed it.
