CHICKEN ADOBO                            Sunset Magazine

Easy Chicken Adobo from Sunset

makes 4 servings (3 servings if you use the Costco packs of skinless, boneless chicken thighs)


bullet1  tablespoon  vegetable oil
bullet6  bone-in, skinless chicken thighs ( if using the boneless thighs, halve them)
bullet3  cloves garlic, minced
bullet2/3  cup  apple cider vinegar
bullet1/3  cup  soy sauce
bullet1  teaspoon  whole black peppercorns
bullet1  bay leaf


1. Heat oil in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes, then turn over and cook an additional 5 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside.

2. Pour off all but 1 tbsp. of pan drippings and return pan to low heat. Add garlic and sauté until soft, about 1 minute. Add remaining ingredients and stir to incorporate. Return chicken to pan and cook, covered, for 20 minutes.

3. Uncover, increase heat to medium-low and cook 15 to 20 minutes more, occasionally spooning sauce over chicken, until sauce thickens a bit and chicken is tender and nicely glazed with sauce. Remove bay leaf before eating.
