Hey there fam, have you been craving for some Filipino food lately? Well, your girl got you covered! Today, I’m sharing with you a classic Filipino dish that’s been enjoyed by generations – Chicken Adobo!

Gather These Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs chicken thighs (or any part you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1 head of garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns, cracked
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil

Instructions:

1. In a large pot or skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned on all sides, for about 3 to 5 minutes per side.

2. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, for about 1 minute. Pour the soy sauce, vinegar, water, black peppercorns, and bay leaves into the pot, and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, and let the chicken simmer in the sauce for about 30 minutes or until it’s tender and cooked through.

3. Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the pot and set aside. Increase the heat to high, and let the sauce boil until it’s reduced and thickened, for about 10 minutes.

4. Return the chicken back to the pot, and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is coated with the thickened sauce.

5. Transfer the chicken adobo to a serving dish, and sprinkle some chopped green onions and toasted garlic on top. Serve hot with steamed rice and enjoy!
