Crock Pot Chicken Adobo
Crock Pot Chicken Adobo – the best and easiest chicken adobo in a crock pot. Just add the chicken, garlic and seasonings and dinner will be ready.
Bee shared a wonderful recipe for Chicken Adobo last year from her friend’s cookbook. And while many may instantly relate adobo to canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, in the Filipino culture, adobo actually is a type of vinegar-based marinade that consists of soy sauce and garlic.
Adobo is definitely highlighted in this poultry dish that is accented with whole black peppercorns and bay leaves. When simmering away in the crock pot, the chicken takes on the tanginess of the vinegar. In addition, the vinegar helps maintain the chicken’s tenderness, and the result, a moist piece of poultry.
When serving, I recommend simple steamed white rice with a side of romaine lettuce and cucumbers. Drizzle the sauce over the lettuce and cucumbers for added flavor. A side of soy sauce for dipping pieces of the chicken into would also be delicious. You can add extra oomph to the soy sauce by whisking in sugar, sliced Thai chili peppers and lime juice.
Chicken adobo is an excellent recipe for a slow cooker or crock pot. Just have all the ingredients in the crock pot and let it do the magic. Dinner will be ready for the entire family without much fuss, and the clean up is a breeze as you have only one pot to clean. Enjoy and do try out this crock pot chicken adobo recipe for your family!
