Around here we can never have enough delicious chicken dishes. Especially easy ones that can be cooked in just one pot. Recently my son was having a late night Food Network binge (Bobby Flay was having a Chicken Adobo cook-off,) when he woke up the first thing he asked me to do was make chicken adobo. He said the show convinced him that it would be the best dinner ever! I had never actually heard of this dish but now I’ve got to say it’s going to be on our meal calendar constantly, especially now that we’re heading into the busy back to school time. Nothing beats a healthy & filling one-pot meal when the going gets busy.
So what is Chicken Adobo? Simply put this delicious dish is a mix of sweet salt tangy and garlicky flavors that you absolutely fall in love with the moment you taste them. It really couldn’t be simpler to prepare and I guarantee you your entire family will love it! So where does this creation Chicken Adobo come from? It’s actually a Filipino dish that is served over rice. It’s a complete meal that will warm bellies on any night of the week but is also great for when you have company. I can guarantee we will be enjoying this recipe over and over again especially in the fall and winter after super active days on the ski slopes here in Telluride, Colorado.
If you love to have leftovers, this recipe serves 4-8 and tastes just as great the day after as the flavors marry and the chicken marinates even more. I have also made extra sauce to use over rice and veggies.
