Chicken Adobo

Well, It is officially Fall Weather here…… That means its flannel and comfort food season. lol. When the weather starts to cool down and the days are cool, that is when I break out all of my hearty and warm comfort food recipes. There is just something about getting in the kitchen and making delicious meals for my family. Also, I just love to cook. It is fun to me and I love entertaining and creating new recipes. Now that I have my channel and this blog I get to share it with so many wonderful people.

So with that being said… Let’s get right to it. You know I do not like long drawn out stories before the recipes… lol.

Chicken Adobo


1/2 cup plain white vinegar
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
4 cloves garlic – minced
Red pepper flakes – to your heat preferance
1 lb chicken – legs, thighs, breast or quarter pieces to your preferance
2 cups chicken broth
1 lemon – juiced
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup water
1/4 c parsley or 2 tbsp dried parsley
2 bay leaves


  1. In a bowl combine vinegar, 1/2 cup water, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Stir to combine well to melt the sugar. Add in the chicken. Toss to coat well. Cover with plastic and chill for 1 to 2 hours.
  2. In a dutch oven or a heavy pan with lid add the chicken, marinade, chicken broth, parsley, lemon juice, and bay leaves. Stir to combine well and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 1 hour.
  3. In a measuring cup or bowl combine the flour and the other 1/2 cup water and whisk together until smooth. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside. While whisking pour in the flour mixture and cook until the mixture thickens. About 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the bay leaves and discard them. Add the chicken back in and cook for 5 minutes just to warm the chicken back up. Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper if needed. Serve as is in the pan or move to a platter.

Serve with rice and vegetables or how ever you like. The “gravy” goes well with rice or mashed potatoes. I love making this dish because it is so good and it is super tender. I hope you all enjoy it!
