Chicken Adobo is a dish that originated in the Philippines and has become popular in many parts of the world.

Here is a recipe for Chicken Adobo that you can make in your Instant Pot:

Instant Pot Chicken Adobo

Instant Pot Chicken Adobo

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon water (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Press the sauté button on your Instant Pot and add the chicken thighs, skin side down. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the skin is browned and crispy. Flip the chicken over and sauté the other side for another 5 minutes. Remove the chicken from the Instant Pot and set it aside for now.
  2. Add the soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, water, brown sugar, garlic, peppercorns, and bay leaves to the Instant Pot. Stir everything together to combine.
  3. Return the chicken to the Instant Pot, making sure to coat it well with the sauce.
  4. Cover the Instant Pot with the lid and make sure the pressure valve is set to “sealing.”
  5. Press the “manual” button and set the cooking time for 8 minutes at high pressure.
  6. When the Instant Pot timer beeps, carefully release the pressure using the quick release method.
  7. If desired, you can make the sauce thicker by preparing a slurry. Mix together 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water in a small bowl until the cornstarch dissolves. Press the sauté button on the Instant Pot and stir the cornstarch mixture into the sauce. Cook for a few minutes until the sauce thickens and coats the back of a spoon.
  8. Serve the chicken hot with plenty of sauce and your favorite sides. Some people prefer to have it with steamed rice while others prefer it with bok choy or other veggies.
