Marinating meat is a preliminary preparation of meat for roasting or baking, which helps not only to improve the taste of the meal (the meat is more tender, juicy, delicious and aromatic), but also reduces the cooking time, as the acid, the main component of the marinade, partially destroys the fibers of the meat, whereby excessive heat treatment is not required. In this recipe as a main component for marinating is selected vinegar and soy sauce.

To prepare this meal you will need the next ingredients:

  • 2 pounds of chicken pieces
  • 1 bulb of garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce (or more if you desire)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 cups of water
  • half a cup of white wine vinegar
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
