Ingredients

    For the Chicken Adobo:

    6 chicken thighs, bone in, skin on
    1/2 c. low sodium soy sauce
    1/4 c. white vinegar
    1-2 T. water
    1/2 tsp. cracked black pepper
    1/2 bulb garlic, very roughly chopped

    For the Garlic Fried Rice:
    2 T. oil
    3 cups cooked rice (leftover rice works GREAT)
    1/2 bulb garlic, sliced
    1/2 tsp. salt (more or less to taste)

Directions

Rinse chicken thoroughly and pat dry. Place in large saucepan with a lid. Pour soy sauce and vinegar over chicken, add garlic and pepper, and stir to mix well and coat chicken with sauce. If there is not enough liquid, add water.

Place chicken over medium flame and cover. Cook for 30 minutes or so, mostly undisturbed, till chicken is cooked through and tender. Check a couple times toward the end of cooking time...the sauce will reduce drastically, which is normal, but if it gets too dry, add a little water as needed.

While the chicken cooks, heat oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. When oil begins to smoke, add garlic slices and stir fry till light golden. Add rice and continue stir frying till garlic darkens and rice is warmed through. Cover and set aside.

When chicken finishes cooking, serve with rice. A squeeze of kalamansi juice (or lime juice) goes nicely with the chicken.

  • Some people commented the rice was bland-- add salt and pepper to the rice and garlic. The adobo will have salt from the soy sauce so you don't want the rice to really be salty-- if you have any sauce from the adobo you can drizzle a bit of that over the rice-- yum!! Also you can use legs or wings - 6/27/12
