Chicken Adobo

(recipe by TheSalmons)


Mariante chicken: Cut thighs into 2-3 pieces each and marinate in soy sauce, garlic, and onion for at least 30 minutes.

Cook the rice: add 1 1/2 cups water to 3/4 cup rice in a 3-quart pot and heat to boiling on high. Cover. Reduce heat to low and simmer for approximately 5 minutes. Without removing the cover, turn heat off and leave pot and rice undisturbed for 15-20 more minutes or until rice is tender and the water has been absorbed.

Cook chicken: Heat oil in a large skillet and brown chicken for a couple of minutes on each side. Add rest of the marinade, salt, bay leaves, pepper, and vinegar. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Taste, add brown sugar until it tastes sweet, additional vinegar or soy sauce if taste dictates, and add water if it looks dry. Continue to simmer, uncovered to allow sauce to evaporate and thicken.

Check that chicken is done, and serve over rice.
