Chicken Adobo


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 3 lbs chicken thighs (or a combination of thighs and drumsticks)


  1. Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, water, garlic and pepper together in a large skillet or dutch oven. The skillet should be large enough to accommodate the chicken in a single layer. Bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  2. Add the chicken and reduce the heat to medium lo. Cover and cook for 30 minutes, turning once.
  3. Preheat the grill or broiler. Broil or grill the chicken 3 to 4 inches from heat source, about 5 minutes on each side.
  4. Meanwhile, increase heat on the sauce in the pan until it boils vigorously. Cook until reduced to about 1 cup.
  5. Serve chicken with sauce poured over. Pass any remaining sauce around at the table.
