Spanish-Ish Adobo Chicken

I've modified this traditional Spanish/Portuguese method of cooking chicken by including one key ingredient of the Filipino-style adobo - soy sauce, because I feel that it completes the savory profile of the dish. This dish is best done low and slow to let the broth condense and to let the chicken become fall-apart tender. The leftovers go great on tacos or made into soup. It's also a low-calorie, low-fat dish, so it's great for weight-watchers!

directions

  • Combine all ingredients EXCEPT for chicken stock and bay leaves and marinate chicken for at least one hour, but preferably overnight.
  • Add chicken, marinade, and bay leaves to a deep skillet or medium stock pot and cook on medium-low heat (a slow-cooker can also be used). Cover and cook for at least 1 hour, but preferably longer. For best results, reduce heat to low and cook for 3 to 4 hours, removing the cover for about the last hour so the broth reduces slightly. Serve immediately over rice and with a slice of chewy bread to mop up the leftover broth.
