Chicken Adobo recipe

Adobo is a essential Filipino dish. When I was a kid, we had it at least when a week for either lunch or dinner. Every household has their own handle adobo, however the fundamentals are the exact same — some type of meat (typically chicken, pork or a combination of both) marinated as well as then cooked in soy sauce, vinegar as well as garlic. It’s a savory primary meal packed with flavor, as well as almost everybody I understand likes it.

A few quick tips:

I generally utilize apple cider vinegar, however you can switch it out for balsamic. The traditional method is to make it with white cane vinegar, which is likewise fantastic too!

Low as well as sluggish is the method to go; that’s the key to tender poultry adobo. If your sauce is reducing as well quickly, add a bit water.

No peppercorns on hand? substitute with ground black or white pepper.

Just in situation you’re unfamiliar with bay leaves — don’t eat them! They’re there for adding flavor to the dish.

Oh, as well as this meal is sufficient for my household of three, however if you have more people to feed, then double the ingredients. I generally serve it with white rice as well as a veggie on the side.


1 lb boneless, skinless poultry thighs

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

6 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp brown sugar

2 tsp olive oil

3 bay leaves

1 medium onion cut in thin half-moon slivers

1 tsp black peppercorn (you can reduce this to 1/2 tsp if you want)


In a glass bowl, mix the soy sauce, vinegar as well as half the garlic to make a marinade. add the chicken, then cover with plastic wrap as well as pop in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or as much as a few hours.

In either a dutch oven or a big pan with high sides, warm the olive oil to medium high. add the onions as well as cook up until they’re aromatic as well as translucent (about five minutes, provide or take). Then, add the garlic, as well as cook up until fragrant, which for me is about minute. Side note: don’t shed the garlic, otherwise it will be bitter.

Push the onions as well as garlic to one the side of the pan, then location the poultry in the pan to lightly brown it.

Pour the marinade into the pot. add the rest of the garlic, the bay leaves, peppercorns as well as brown sugar. stir whatever together gently.

Bring to a low simmer, then cover the pot as well as continue to cook on low warm for about 25 minutes. If your sauce is reducing as well quickly, then add water.

Remove cover, as well as then shred the poultry with two forks. continue to simmer on low for about 15 minutes to thicken the sauce.

Serve with rice as well as your preferred veggies.
