Chicken Adobo

I lived in Yellowknife ,NWT for 6 years after Murray & I got married.  While I lived there I learned a lot about cooking and baking from my friends, I was a young bride and mother and needed help!  Many of the recipes I have I will share here on this space over time.

A friend of my MIL, who is from the Philippines,  gave me this recipe for Chicken Adobo which is the national dish of the Philippines. I called her up last night to ask if I could post this recipe and she said sure but not to post her name! I have been making this for years as well as the rest of my husband’s family. It takes a couple of hours to cook but the prep is super simple.

I will post the recipe as she gave it to me. Any questions just ask!

 Ingredients 

 1 regular size chicken (cut into serving pieces)

1/2 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup soy sauce *** she recommends using China Lily but I use whatever I have on hand

1 cup water

6 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 small onion, chopped

salt to taste (1/2 tsp)

black pepper

Procedure:

 Place chicken in a medium size pan, put in salt & pepper. Add vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, onions & water.ix throughly.  Cover and simmer, oner medium heat. ( do not remove cover until it is boiling). Stir it once in a while to even cooking. Simmer until chicken meat is tender and liquid has practically evaporated and meat is brown. Serve hot

 *** If the sauce tastes too vinegery add 1/2 tsp of sugar, stir , taste and continue to add a bit more sugar at a time as needed to your taste. The sauce should still taste of vinegar and not sweet but you don’t want it to have too strong a vinegar taste.

 NOTE: after coming to a boil it took approx 1 1/2 hours to be finished.

    Looks great! Do you think it would work in a slow cooker?

    1. Probably but I would look for a slow cooker recipe and compare since the liquid reduces in this recipe and in a slow cookers don’t think it does so it might be ‘soupy’ if you compare amounts of liquid you can use this but an appropriate amount of liquid for a slow cooker.. adjusting the seasonings according to the the Amy of liquid so it won’t be too strong in flavour. You can make this recipe in the oven.
