Recipe: Chicken Adobo

A set it and forget recipe this takes time but practically no effort to produce delicious and flavorful chicken that is perfect with a nice pile of rice. I always store the leftover sauce and use it to make stir fry. I used only drumsticks the first time but I would actually recommend bone in thighs or a mixture of pieces in the future and to just adjust the cooking time slightly depending on the size of the pieces.

Add marinade liquid to the pan with the chicken and increase the heat to bring the liquid to a boil.

Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and let simmer covered for 45-60 minutes, , flipping the chicken a few times through the cooking process to coat evenly, until the sauce thickens and the chicken is completely coated.
