In a large skillet combine all the ingredients except the chicken pieces and turn the heat to med/high and bring to a boil.
Place as many chicken pieces in the sauce mixture that you can fit into pan.
Cover and bring to a boil and turn down the heat to a simmer and let it slowly cook for 2-3 hours. Remove the lid 1/2 way during cooking time.( Turning the pieces over and Basting chicken several times through out the cooking process.)Almost all of the liquid will be gone when its done.
Serve the cooked chicken (or pork) over a bed of your favorite rice ( I used Golden StarJasmine rice).
TOO COOK THE RICE : In a medium sauce pan bring the 5 cups of water to a boil and add the rice , lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes , stirring once. Do not cover the rice. Remove from the heat and let sit for 5 minutes than fluff with a fork and serve.
Note : You can increase/decrease the ingredients depending on your personal preference or the amount of meat your cooking.
