Chicken Adobo

I decided to cook some chicken adobo as my wife always goes out to buy her food at one of the Filipino restaurants that have food to go. We did not go get any food for her this weekend as she is on-call this week.

This recipe can be increased for larger sized meals. This recipe is perfect for a family of 4.


2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 (3 pound) chicken, cut into pieces
1 large onion, quartered and sliced
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/3 cup white vinegar
2/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 bay leaf


1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken pieces until golden brown on both sides, then remove. Stir in the onion and garlic; cook until they soften and brown, about 6 minutes.

2. Pour in vinegar and soy sauce, and season with garlic powder, black pepper, and bay leaf. Add the browned chicken, increase the heat to high, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the chicken is tender and cooked through, 35 to 40 minutes.
