Filipino Adobo Chicken Top


There are a lot of bold flavors in this chicken adobo recipe. But once the chicken is done marinading and you braise it in the oven you won’t believe how amazing the flavors are. It isn’t too salty, or too strong of vinegar. It isn’t too spicy from pepper, it is in fact completely well balanced and perfect served over Sticky Steamed White Rice.

 How to Make Chicken Adobo

  • Bone in Chicken – This chicken is braised over a long period of time until it is tender, so bone-in skin-on chicken is necessary.
  • Marinate for 4 hours – The time it marinades allows the chicken to absorbs all the flavors of the garlic cloves, soy sauce, vinegar and pepper. Do not skimp on the marinating time.
  • Braise the chicken – Cook the chicken pieces covered first skin side down, then uncovered in the marinade skin side up until it is browned and the adobo sauce is thickened.

Adobo Sauce Ingredients

  • Chicken Thighs – Chicken thighs and chicken legs are the two best cuts of chicken to use in this Filipino dish, be sure to use bone in and skin on. I do not recommend using chicken breasts in this recipe.
  • Soy Sauce – I use low sodium soy sauce in all recipes as the sodium in regular soy sauce is just too high and the flavors are too salty in recipe testing.
  • White Vinegar – I have tested this adobo recipe with rice vinegar, cane vinegar, apple cider vinegar and white wine vinegar and the classic version with distilled white vinegar is the best option for you to use.
  • Bay Leaf – Do not skip this ingredient and be sure to remove them before serving.
  • Garlic Cloves – Garlic is a prominent flavor in this recipe and must be included. Do not substitute powdered garlic in it’s place.
  • Black Peppercorns – You need a full tablespoon of whole black peppercorns, do not add ground black pepper to this recipe or your palate will be blown out.

Instant Pot Chicken Adobo Recipe

  • Add the marinaded chicken and sauce to your instant pot and set the pressure to high for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken and place on sheet pan and place under broiler to crisp.
  • Reduce remaining sauce on sauté setting of instant pot until reduced by half.

Slow Cooker Chicken Adobo Recipe

  • Add all the ingredients and the chicken skin side up into a large slow cooker and cook on low heat for 6-7 hours.
  • Remove the chicken and place on sheet pan and place under broiler to crisp.
  • Remove remaining sauce from slow cooker, reduce on your stovetop in a small saucepan until thickened.
