Adobo Chicken

Please note: Unless specially stated, all recipes are meant to be consumed by humans, not dogs like Cheddar :)

Adobo is an easy to make Filipino chicken recipe spiced up with black peppercorns. This is a family recipe!


  • 3lbs boneless chicken thighs (with or without skin, pictured here is without but I also recommend it with!)

  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/4 cup vinegar

  • 2 tablespoon peppercorn

  • 3 bay leaves

  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce


  • If you are using chicken with skin: start by lightly frying the chicken. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a shallow pot or pan over medium heat. Cook the chicken until browned, then flip and brown the other side. Transfer chicken to a plate and clean out your pan.
  • Using the same pan, add water, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, fish sauce, peppercorn and bay leaves. Bring the mixture to a boil, then place the chicken into the pan.
  • Reduce the heat to a simmer and cover for about twenty minutes. Once done, flip all of the pieces of chicken and simmer for another twenty minutes.
  • Shred chicken and serve over rice with extra scoops of sauce if desired.
