How to Make Adobo Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large kettle combine the chicken, vinegar,
    garlic, bay leaves, peppercorns, and 1 cup water,
    bring the mixture to a boil, and simmer it, covered,
    for 20 minutes. Add the soy sauce and simmer the
    mixture, covered, for 20 minutes. Transfer the chicken
    with tongs to a plate and boil the liquid for 10
    minutes, or until it is reduced to about 1 cup. Let
    the sauce cool, remove the bay leaves, and skim the
    fat from the surface.
    In a large skillet heat the oil over high heat until
    it is hot but not smoking and in it saute the chicken,
    patted dry, in batches, turning it, for 5 minutes, or
    until it is browned well. Transfer the chicken to a
    rimmed platter, pour the sauce over the chicken.
