I'm 1/2 Filipino and this is similar to what I grew up on. I brown the chicken first with onion and garlic, then simmer with water, low sodium soy sauce, and rice vinegar. I throw in a couple bay leaves, a few peppercorns (don't omit these, they are wonderful!) season with pepper, onion & garlic powder. I don't think I use as much vinagar as this recipe calls for, but like a previous viewer said, it takes more than one try to balance the water/soy sauce/vinegar mixture to your taste. I'd probably just add extra water to this recipe. The other hint is to use low sodium soy sauce, this dish can tend to get very salty with regular soy sauce. I've never tried ginger, but I will next time I make this dish! My husband's family (they're German) love this dish!
