Chicken Adobo Recipe

Today I am sharing this chicken adobo recipe, which I am sure a lot of you have heard already.  Chicken adobo is a very popular dish in the Philippines, you can pretty much any meat you prefer.  Some people use chicken, beef and even the pork. There are different variation way of making chicken adobo. Some do use just the chicken breast, and some use meat with bones and the extra fat.

This recipe requires few ingredients only, and you can use the soy sauce that is gluten free if you are allergic to gluten like me.  The key to having a delicious and tender chicken adobo is to marinade the meat for 30 minutes or 2 hours.  Whenever I make adobo I marinade the meat overnight that way the flavor can soak through the meat.

Marinating this overnight give it time to really blend all the flavor through the meat.  However, if you want to have this at dinner time, 45 minutes to an hour is perfectly fine.  But remember when you do cook meat do not put your heat to high, that way the meat won’t be tough.  Chicken adobo is perfect to go over rice, the juice of this will make your rice taste even better.

  1. This meal looks amazing. I’ve never seen a recipe with apple cider vinegar and am eager to make this (minus the jalapeno!). What is your favorite rice to serve with it.

    1. I have used the apple cider vinegar before and it’s pretty good. Honestly, I love using the basmati rice, but you can use jasmine rice as well, brown rice works great as well.

  2. I Adore Chicken Adobo – thank you for the great recipe. I hadn’t realized that it was something I could make with ingredients I already have on hand. Can’t wait to try it.

  3. Oh man this looks so delicious. I love making chicken but it’s hard to think outside the box for me. This looks like something that would be great to add to the menu.

  4. I haven’t ate chicken since I was a child. This recipe looks yummy and I wonder if I could use the sauce suggestion for veggie meat.
