Simple and DELICIOUS Chicken Adobo. Serves 1 Simple and DELICIOUS Chicken Adobo. Serves 1
Number of Servings: 1


    1 chicken breast- boneless, skinless
    1/4 cup cider vinegar
    1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
    1/4 of a diced onion
    1 chopped garlic clove
    1 bay leaf
    1/4 tsp ginger

    pepper (optional)
    cooking spray


Marinating raw chicken in soy sauce, vinegar, and ginger makes it very flavorful!

cook onions and garlic until slightly tender.
Add vinegar, soy sauce, bay leaf, and ginger and cook on medium for 3 minutes, or until bubbly.
Reduce heat and add chicken. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until done. Simmer sauce more if it needs to be thickened.

Goes great with Bok Choy! You can saute it separately, or add it in with the chicken and cook in the sauce!

    I love fresh spinach, so had this chicken over a plate of chopped spinach - was delicious! - 4/7/10

    I see some people are objecting to the high sodium -- if you substitute Bragg's Liquid Aminos for the soy sauce, the sodium content is much less. - 7/16/12

    Do you marinate the chicken in the sauce mixture before cooking? If so, for how long? Or, do you just cook it in the sauce? Thanks! - 2/2/10

    you can do this if you'd like. I usually marinate it for at least an hour in the fridge inside of a plastic bag. Then I cook it in the sauce I made for the marinade. Hope that helps!

    This came out very good! I was skeptical about the ginger, but it added a nice touch. My boyfriend was ecstatic; it reminded him of his dad who lives across the country. - 6/17/10
