1 1/2 cups soy sauce
1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup vinegar
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
3 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate.
2. In a large pot, mix soy sauce, water, vinegar, honey, garlic, bay leaves, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, and place the chicken into the pot. Reduce heat, cover, and cook 35 to 40 minutes.
3. Remove chicken, drain on paper towels, and set aside. Discard bay leaves. Return the mixture to a boil, and cook until reduced to about 1 1/2 cups.
4. Place chicken on the prepared grill, about 5 minutes on each side, until browned and crisp. Serve with the remaining soy sauce mixture.
