Chicken Adobo

Coconut Adobo

Great chicken adobo starts with the best soy sauce! We love Coconut Brand soy sauce with extra rich flavour and colour you’ll notice right away.

Serving Size: 4 – 6

Prep time: 30 minutes, cook time 45 minutes


  • 4 pounds bone-in chicken thighs (or legs)
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Brand soy sauce
  • 6 – 8 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppercorns
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Combine chicken, soy sauce, garlic, peppercorns, vinegar and bay leaves in a glass bowl. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes up to 3 hours.
  2. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving liquid.
    Heat oil in a wide, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Add chicken including garlic and bay leaves. Cook for a few minutes each side until chicken skin is lightly browned.
  3. Return marinade to the skillet with the chicken, bringing to a boil over high heat. Lower the heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove lid and simmer until sauce is reduced and the chicken is tender, about 5 to 10 more minutes. Serve with steamed rice.
