Filipino Chicken Adobo

Updated: Oct 28, 2023

Servings: 6


  • 3 pounds of chicken thighs (with bone and skin)

  • 1/2 cup coconut vinegar (or substitute rice vinegar)

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce

  • 1 head of garlic, peeled and cloves smashed or chopped

  • 2 bay leaves

  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat a large saute pan over medium high heat. Add the soy sauce, vinegar, bay leaves, garlic, and black pepper.

  2. When the liquid simmers, add the chicken skin side down. Reduce the heat to medium-low and let it simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Using the tongs, flip the chicken and cover.

  3. Simmer on low for about 40 minutes. The chicken usually releases a lot of liquid. Remove the lid, turn up the heat and let the sauce reduce/thicken for a couple of minutes.

  4. Serve with jasmine rice, spooning the sauce over the chicken and rice.
