Filipino Chicken Adobo

Recipe by Mebriella
READY IN: 2hrs




  • Place chicken in a big stock pot.
  • Put in all your ingredients, you don't have to mix, it will mix when it boils.
  • After you add the ingredients, put in enough water to cover the chicken.
  • Bring to a full boil.
  • Once it starts boiling, turn the heat down (medium-high heat) enough to where it's a soft boil (boiling but not over boiling out of pot) and cover with lid but with a crack.
  • Stir every half hour or so.
  • Let it boil all the way until there is about only 1 inch of liquid left. This is usually about an hour to an hour and a half.
  • The chicken should also be dark brown all the way through, if the meat is still whitish then you need to cook it longer.
  • Add the sliced onions and stir if using.
  • Cook for only 5 min just enough for the onions to turn soft.
  • Serve alone or with cooked white rice or my savory garlic fried rice.
