If you like wings but haven’t been able to eat them due to the high points, this would be a good substitution.  Very tasty.


8 chicken legs on the bone (skin removed)

1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1 small head of garlic, crushed

6 ground peppercorns

4 bay leaves

1 jalapeno, chopped (optional)


Marinate chicken in vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, jalapeno and pepper, for at least an hour (overnight is ideal).  Add chicken, 1/2 cup water, bay leaves and marinade into a deep nonstick skillet and cook on medium-low heat.  Cover and cook until the meat is tender, about 45 minutes.  Remove the cover and cook an additional 15 minutes, until the sauce thickens.  Discard bay leaves and serve over rice.
