View Full Version : Filipino Chicken Adobo

03-01-2009, 08:09 PM
3 lb chicken thighs
1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup white vinegar
3 Tbs brown sugar
1 Tbs minced ginger (I buy the bottled ginger or the one in the tube since I hate peeling and mincing my own fresh ginger)
1 Tbs minced garlic.
1/4 tsp black pepper (fresh ground is preferable)
water to cover the chicken

Place soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, ginger, garlic and ground pepper in a large saucepan.
Add the chicken thighs
Add water so that the thighs are barely covered in liquid.
Bring the pot to a boil. Lower the heat to medium. Cover half of the pot with a lid, allowing steam to escape, but keeping the liquid boiling steadily.
Turn off the heat after 30 -45 minutes. You want to reduce the liquid, but don't let it reduce to the point where it is completely gone and the sauce starts to burn. Serve over hot white rice.

Ginger in the tube is sooooo much better than grating your own ginger. LOL!

Glad you enjoyed it.
