Chicken Adobo Recipe

Adobo is a famous Filipino dish, which can be done with chicken, pork, fish or vegetables.

There are variations in the ingredients and cooking procedures of chicken adobo, depending on the taste and style of the cook.

The recipe below is my own version. I particularly like this recipe because it doesn't require much time to prepare. I just combine all the ingredients and cook it. That's how easy it is. I used chicken thighs because it's my favorite part of the chicken. Packed and frozen chicken thighs can be easily found in any supermarkets in Abu Dhabi.

  • 1/2 kilo Chicken Thighs, cleaned (thaw if using frozen chicken)
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 3 gloves garlic, crushed
  • 6 tbsp. soy sauce (adjust amount according to taste)
  • 3 tbsp. cup vinegar (adjust amount according to taste)
  • black pepper
  • bay leaf (optional)
  • chili flakes (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar (optional)
  • water

    Cooking Procedure:
    Combine all ingredients in a pot. Bring to boil in medium fire until sauce is thick.

    Preparation and Cooking Time: 30-40 minutes (not including thawing)
    Serving size: good for 3 persons

    Healthy Options:
    1) Use chicken breast for lesser fat or if you want to use your favorite chicken parts you may want to consider removing the skin.
    2) Make a different kind of adobo, like vegetable adobo (see Adobong Sitaw).
