Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients except water into a stock pot.
  2. Add enough water to the pot until all the chicken is covered, about 3/4 full. Do not over fill with water as the pot will overflow while cooking.
  3. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  4. Skim any froth from the top and sides, reduce heat to medium low.
  5. Simmer uncovered until chicken is cooked and liquid is reduced by half. 30 – 45 minutes.
  6. Heat cooking oil in frying pan.
  7. Sautee 3 tsp. minced garlic in pan until it turns slightly brown.
  8. Transfer cooked chicken and sauce into pan. Remove bay leaves.
  9. Sautee until sauce is reduced by 1/4 and slightly thickens.
  10. Serve over hot steamed white rice.
  11. Adobo freezes very well. You can freeze it before you fry it in steps 6-9 or after. If freezing before frying, thaw out first and then continue on to steps 6-9. If freezing or storing left overs you can re-heat in the microwave.
  12. I usually make a large batch of this and freeze it in meal sized freeze safe plastic containers. I thaw and sautee as needed. My grandsons love it.
