Looking for a delicious and easy-to-make meal that will have your taste buds begging for more? Look no further than this mouth-watering Chicken Adobo recipe, which is sure to become a staple in your cooking rotation.
To start, you’ll need the following ingredients:
– 1 lb chicken thighs, bone in, skin on
– 1/2 cup soy sauce
– 1/2 cup white vinegar
– 1/2 cup water
– 1/4 cup brown sugar
– 6 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 tbsp black peppercorns
– 3 bay leaves
Begin by heating a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook until browned on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
In the same skillet, add the soy sauce, white vinegar, water, brown sugar, minced garlic, black peppercorns, and bay leaves. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low and add the chicken back to the skillet. Cover and simmer for 30-35 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
Once the chicken is done, remove it from the skillet and set aside. Increase the heat to high and let the sauce come to a boil, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened and reduced by about half.
To serve, place the chicken in a large bowl and pour the sauce over it. Garnish with chopped green onions or cilantro, if desired.
But wait, there’s more! Check out this variation on the classic Chicken Adobo recipe, which adds a touch of sweetness to the dish:
– Substitute 1/2 cup coconut aminos for the soy sauce
– Add 1/4 cup honey to the sauce mixture
– Garnish with toasted coconut and sliced scallions
And if you’re looking for a vegetarian option, try substituting tofu for the chicken and using vegetable broth instead of water in the sauce.
No matter how you make it, Chicken Adobo is a delicious and easy meal that will leave you feeling satisfied and happy. Give it a try today, and taste the magic for yourself!
