Easy Filipino Chicken Adobo

This meal is soooooo easy and delicious you’re going to love me.

Easy Filipino Chicken AdoboWho doesn’t love an easy, inexpensive chicken dinner? NO ONE! The hardest about this meal is taking the skin off of the chicken legs. Even that’s not hard, I just don’t like to do it. Ha!

For this recipe you will need:

8 chicken legs on the bone (skin removed)
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 small head of garlic, crushed
6 ground peppercorns

Mix together the apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, and pepper in a medium bowl, and then lay the chicken in a deep dish. Pour the mixture over the chicken and allow it to marinate for at least an hour (overnight is ideal). (I always do it over night so my “prepping” for the next day is done!)

Easy Filipino Chicken AdoboAdd the chicken, 1/2 cup of water, and marinade into a deep nonstick skillet and cook on medium-low heat.

Easy Filipino Chicken AdoboCover and cook until the meat is tender, about 45 minutes. (Make sure you flip the chicken legs occasionally.) Also, it’s okay if some of the chicken isn’t completely submerged or flat against the pan (like in the picture above). The chicken meat will reduce as it’s cooking and you’ll eventually be able to lay them all down in the pan for even cooking.

Remove the cover and cook an additional 15 minutes, until the sauce reduces.

Serve over rice and TA-DA! Easy right?? I served mine with rice and steamed broccoli and it was dee-licious!
