Hey there, fellow foodies! Today, I’m going to share with you my recipe for the perfect Chamorro Chicken Adobo. Don’t worry if you’ve never heard of it before – it’s a dish that originates from Guam, and it’s absolutely delicious.
But before we begin, let’s take a moment to appreciate the beauty of this first image. Just look at that succulent chicken, bathed in a mouthwatering blend of soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and black pepper. It’s making my stomach rumble just looking at it. And don’t even get me started on that perfectly cooked rice, ready to soak up all of those delicious juices.
Now let’s get down to business. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 4 lbs chicken, cut into pieces
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 1 cup white vinegar
- 1 head of garlic, minced
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 cup water
And that’s it! You probably have most of these ingredients in your pantry right now.
Now for the fun part – putting it all together.
- Combine soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, black pepper, and bay leaves in a large pot. Add chicken and stir to coat. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes.
- Bring the pot to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 30-40 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
- Remove the chicken from the pot and set aside.
- Increase the heat to high, and let the sauce boil for a few minutes until it has reduced slightly.
- Return the chicken to the pot, and add one cup of water. Bring the pot back up to a boil, then let simmer for an additional 10-15 minutes.
- And that’s it! Serve your delicious Chamorro Chicken Adobo over rice, and enjoy the flavors of the Pacific.
Wait, what’s that? You want to see another picture of this mouthwatering dish? Well, who am I to deny you. Just look at that second image. The chicken is positively glistening in that rich, savory sauce. And that rice, perfectly fluffy and ready to soak up every last drop.
