A Spin on a 20 Minute Healthier Chicken Adobo
June 13, 2017

Nothing's more comforting than a bowl of Adobo after a long day, but we can sometimes find ourselves pressed for time and energy. Traditional Filipino Adobo recipes often call for hours of cooking time to make the meat tender and allow the fat to render, resulting in a dish that's delicious, but a little unhealthy and quite time-consuming. I make a version of chicken adobo that you can make in about 20 minutes and it's a bit healthier so you don't feel guilty while indulging in the country's favorite flavors. 

Watch the video below, and try it out yourselves! Let me know what you think, and what other recipes you'd like to see.

Ingredients:

1 tsp coconut oil

6 boneless chicken thighs

3 cloves of garlic minced

1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion

1/2 cup chicken stock 

3 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup cane vinegar

3 laurel leaves

2 tbsp soy sauce

cracked black pepper to taste

sesame seeds and jalapeno powder or chili flakes to garnish (optional)
 
1. Heat up your coconut oil, fry off the thighs on both sides until a nice brown color is achieved. 
2. After turning your thighs around, throw in the garlic and cook for 2 mins. 
3. Deglaze the pan with the chicken stock. 
4. Transfer to a pot, add in the vinegar, bring to a boil and simmer for 15 mins. Add the onions and the laurel and cook for 5mins. Season with the soy sauce. Let simmer for 15mins more. 
6. Plate on its own or with rice. Finish with cracked black pepper and any other option.
