If you’re looking for an easy and delicious chicken dish, then look no further than Chicken Adobo! This Filipino classic is sure to impress your taste buds and leave you feeling satisfied. I’ve found two recipes to share with you, so let’s dive in!
First up is an Easy Chicken Adobo Recipe that is perfect for beginners. To start, in a large pan, combine 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/4 cup water, 1 head of garlic (minced), and 1 teaspoon of black pepper. Add 2 pounds of chicken thighs (bone-in and skin-on), and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 30-40 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
When you’re ready to serve, transfer the chicken to a plate and strain the sauce into a separate bowl. In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat, and brown the chicken skin-side down for about 2-3 minutes. Flip the chicken and brown for another 2-3 minutes, then remove from the heat. Pour the sauce over the chicken and garnish with sliced scallions. This dish pairs well with white rice.
Next, we have a Chicken Adobo Recipe from Cooking Classy that takes the traditional flavors up a notch. To start, in a large bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup soy sauce, 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1 head of garlic (minced). Add 2 pounds of chicken thighs (bone-in and skin-on), and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (or overnight).
When you’re ready to cook, preheat your oven to 375°F. In a large, oven-safe pan, arrange the chicken skin-side up and pour the marinade over the top. Bake for 45-50 minutes, basting the chicken with the sauce every 15 minutes.
When the chicken is done, remove it from the oven and transfer to a plate. Over medium-high heat, reduce the sauce by half (about 10 minutes). Drizzle the sauce over the chicken and garnish with chopped scallions and sesame seeds.
