Chicken Adobo - Lower Fat and Sodium

Chicken Adobo - Lower Fat and Sodium created by Derf2440

This recipe uses bone-in skinless chicken breasts and less fat and soy sauce than usual. Lemon juice instead of vinegar gives it a different flavour, although use vinegar if that's what you like. You can substitute a whole chicken, cut up and with skin removed. Serve with steamed rice and vegetables.

    I cut the onion by half, added a couple more bay leaves, used Data Puti vinegar and used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce to reduce the salt even further.

    Any idea of the sodium content in one serving or total?
