Experience the rich and savory flavors of Filipino cuisine with this easy-to-make, one-pan chicken adobo skillet. Tender chicken pieces are marinated in soy sauce and garlic, then simmered with bay leaves, vinegar, and spices creating a mouthwatering and aromatic dish.
In a large bowl, combine the low-sodium soy sauce and minced garlic. Add the chicken thighs and marinate for 30 minutes, turning occasionally to ensure even coverage.
In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the vegetable oil. Remove chicken from the marinade (reserve the marinade) and carefully place the chicken skin-side down in the skillet. Brown for 5 minutes on each side.
Add the reserved marinade, water, dried bay leaves, and whole black peppercorns to the skillet. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
Uncover the skillet and add the white vinegar, stirring gently to combine. Simmer for 10 more minutes.
Stir in the brown sugar and salt, then let it cook for another 2 minutes. Remove the skillet from heat.
Serve the chicken adobo with steamed rice, and spoon the sauce over the top. Enjoy!
