What is Chicken Adobo?
Chicken Adobo is a slow-cooked Filipino chicken dish that is well loved by many people. There is nothing not to love about tender, moist, fall-off-the-bone and delicious chicken cooked with a few adobo ingredients. It can be made in one pot, pan, skillet, slow cooker or Instant Pot.
This recipe is adapted from Burnt Lumpia‘s cookbook: The Adobo Road Cookbook. It’s a super easy and authentic adobo recipe but yields delicious and amazing results. The adobo seasonings consist of soy sauce and Filipino white cane sugar vinegar. You can also used distilled white vinegar.
How Do You Make The Best and Authentic Adobo?
- Brown the chicken thighs underneath the broiler for 3–5 minutes
- Use freshly ground black pepper instead of whole peppercorns.
- Reduce the sauce until it is almost completely evaporated and the chicken will then begin to fry in its own fat.
- For make more adobo sauce, double the amount of soy sauce and vinegar.
Chicken adobo makes a perfect dish for weeknight dinner as the cooking process is so easy. I just love it that everything gets done in one pot and the ingredients are everyday ingredients that you can get easily in any store. There is no need to marinate the chicken; the chicken soaks up the Adobo sauce while cooking in the pan.
You can also make it with a slow cooker or crock pot chicken adobo (click to check out my recipe). This recipe is amazing, so try it. Happy cooking!
