Soya Chicken with Rice and Veggies

I made this for my brother's birthday dinner a couple weeks ago and haven't found a chance to post it. The pictures are not that great, but it is a simple meal that we have eaten for many years, that is very good. It is really easy, not very intimidating and tastes great.
Soya Chicken with Rice and Veggies by my Mom
4-5 lbs chicken thighs and legs

1 1/2 cups soy sauce
1/2 cup sugar
4-5 garlic cloves, minced
1 med. piece fresh gingerroot, diced (or grated with microplane grater, if frozen)
cooked rice
steamed vegetables of your choice-I used broccoli, assorted bell peppers and zucchini

Place chicken thighs and legs in a dutch oven or large heavy bottomed saucepan. In a separate bowl, combine soy sauce, sugar, garlic, and gingerroot. Stir and pour over the chicken. Bring mixture to a boil over medium high heat and then reduce heat, and simmer, covered for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Yummy! I love that combo of garlic, ginger and soy on poultry. Your brother's wife is going to hate you!:)
