What is chicken Adobo?

Chicken Adobo is one of the most delicious recipes where chicken is braised in a marinade which is made of soy sauce, black pepper, bay leaves and vinegar. This easy version takes some few shortcuts but gives the same punchy taste and super soft braised chicken.

Chicken Adobo INGREDIENTS:

  • chicken thighs [2.2 lbs / 1 kg]
  • (white) vinegar [0.4 cups / 100 ml]
  • water [1.25 cups / 300 ml]
  • soy sauce [2-3 tbsp / 30 – 50 ml]
  • 5-6 garlic cloves
  • black peppercorns [1-2 tbsp / 10 g]
  • 5 bay leaves
  • 1 medium spicy pepper

Servings: 6


Heat up the chicken thighs, skin-side down, in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat

After 3 minutes, the fat will render out. Flip the chicken thighs and add the garlic cloves and chopped red chili pepper and fry for another 3 minutes

Pour in all the liquids and bring to a boil.

Add the black peppercorns and bay leaves. Reduce temperature to low and let simmer for 30 minutes. Cover with a lid!

Flip the chicken thighs after 15 minutes

The chicken will be super tender and juicy. For some more color, we fried the cooked chicken separately over high heat for a minute

Eat with rice and pour some of the sauce on top.

Enjoy your Chicken Adobo!
