6. Reduce the heat to medium and let the excess water evaporate.

P.S. Always use fresh garlic for this. It brings out the flavor more.

    We didn't love this recipe. The vinegar makes the chicken and rice very dry. I felt in order to give it some flavor, I'd need to add salt...I didn't want to do that. Chicken thighs might have worked better, but they are fatty. - 10/15/11
