I just had to share with you all the most amazing Filipino Chicken Adobo recipe ever. It’s so good, it will make you want to do a happy dance! Trust me, I know my way around a kitchen and this recipe is one that I’ll be making over and over again.


  • 1 1/2 lbs bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until browned, turning once, about 5-6 minutes per side.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, white vinegar, honey, garlic, bay leaf, and black pepper.
  3. Pour sauce over chicken in skillet.
  4. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low and cover.
  5. Cook for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and tender.
  6. Serve hot over rice, garnished with green onions and toasted sesame seeds if desired.

This recipe has a great balance of sour, salty, and sweet flavors. The chicken is so tender and juicy, it practically falls off the bone. It’s perfect for a family dinner, or even for meal prep. Just be sure to make enough, because you’ll definitely want leftovers!
