Adobo Chicken

Adobo Chicken

My mom used to make us adobo chicken when I was a kid.  I loved it.  I found out later, it is such a simple recipe.  

It can either be done on the stove or in the crock pot.  On the bone or off the bone..either way, a delicious Filipino dish.  In this picture its left on the bone... even though i usually take the bones out once the meat starts falling off.  


2lbs of chicken thighs  (Bone or Boneless)
1/4cup white vinegar
1/2 cup LOW SODIUM soy sauce
1 cup water
    4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp. black peppercorns
2-3 whole bay leaves


Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Bring to boil, then lower heat, cover and simmer until meat is falling off the bone or easily pulled apart apart with a fork. Serve over steamed rice.   YUM.

For the Crock-Pot  option - put in all ingredients and turn on low before work ... 8 hours later you got yourself a dish.  Remove the bones and serve chicken and juice over rice.
