Hey, fellow foodies! Are you feeling adventurous today? If yes, then have I got a recipe for you! I stumbled upon this delicious chicken adobo recipe that’s only seven ingredients (can I get a “HECK YEAH!”). And trust me, it’s the Who needs complicated recipes with a million steps? Not me, and definitely not you.

Let’s dive in, shall we? First, we need to gather our ingredients: bone-in chicken thighs, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, bay leaves, sugar, and black pepper. Simple, right? Now, let’s get cooking.

In a large pot, add your chicken thighs (skin on, baby!), soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, bay leaves, black pepper, and sugar. Yes, dump it all in there. Mix it all up, cover it up, and let it marinate in its own goodness for 30 minutes. While you’re waiting, you can do a little dance, make a little love, or just relax.

After 30 minutes, bring the pot to a boil over high heat. Once it’s boiling, lower the heat and let it simmer for 45 minutes. Don’t forget to stir it occasionally, because we don’t want anything sticking to the bottom of the pot.

Now, onto the most important part – drooling over the end result. Take out your chicken and let it rest on a plate (so it can soak up all the yummy juices). In the same pot, let the remaining sauce simmer for another 10 minutes to thicken it up. Then, pour the sauce over your chicken and voila! Deliciousness in a pot.

But wait, there’s more! We can’t forget about the visuals. Picture this: a bright and colorful plate with tender chicken thighs soaked in a sweet and savory sauce. And that’s not all – we have two different images to show you. One with a classic presentation, and another with a modern and artistic touch.

For the classic look, simply place your chicken on a bed of white rice and drizzle the sauce on top (oh yeah, don’t forget the bay leaves for that extra oomph). And for the trendy look, present your chicken on a black plate with a sprinkle of cilantro and a wedge of lime on the side. Oh, and don’t forget your Instagram filter.
