Eve's One Pot Chicken Adobo on Rice
Serves 4 to 6
Adobo is the Philippines national dish and a favorite with
many people in Hawaii. What most people think of when they
hear the word "adobo" is a stew with the basic elements of
chicken and pork in a sauce of white vinegar, soy sauce,
garlic, and peppercorns. The variations are endless and
whether served dry or moist, whole or shredded, the subtle
sourness that makes the dish unique is always present. This
is Hawaii governor Ben Cayetano's recipe for Chicken Adobo.
See note at bottom to cook in a crockpot.
3 pounds chicken, cut into serving pieces (or your choice-I
only eat skinless breasts)
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup peppercorns, crushed
1 teaspoon brown sugar
5 garlic cloves, crushed
3 bay leaves
Salt to taste
Combine all ingredients in a pan, cover, and allow to
marinate one to three hours. Bring to a boil, then lower
heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Uncover the pan and allow to
simmer for an additional 15 minutes or until most of the
liquid has evaporated and the chicken is lightly brown.
Serve with white rice.
Note: Crockpot: Combine all in Crockpot, Cook on high 1
hour, then on low 6 hours.
Hope you are all enjoying summer. WI is green and lush.
