    canarygirl's Note:

    One of the most popular ways to serve chicken in the Canary Islands is in Adobo. Adobo is as varied as there are chefs, but the basic ingredients are the same. Feel free to play with the quantities of the ingredients! Cooking is a creative endeavor! Prep time does not include marinating time, so be sure to allow for that.

    1. 1
      Using a mortar and pestle, mash garlic and salt, then add paprika, oregano, thyme, pepper, if using and olive oil.
    2. 2
      Add wine and combine well.
    3. 3
      Coat chicken with marinade, and refrigerate several hours.
    4. 4
      Heat oil over medium heat in a skillet.
    5. 5
      Fry chicken pieces until cooked through-about 20 minutes, lowering heat to medium low after chicken initially sears.
    6. 6
      This can be made with boneless, skinless breasts--just reduce cooking time accordingly.
    7. 7
      This can also be made on the grill-the flavor will be even better!

      Great flavors especially with hot smoked paprika and red wine vinegar instead of wine. I used bone-in skin on breasts, browned in a saute pan and then popped into a hot oven to finish. The recipe is very simple and very tasty. I combined this with Nutty Basmati Pilaf#57609 and thought they went very well together.

      Cooked on the grill in snowstorm. Worth the effort. Will be making again increasing garlic. I used red wine vinegar 1 tsp will increase to 1 tbsp next time. Thanks Canarygirl.
