Chicken Adobo

Adobo is the name of a popular dish and cooking process in Philippine cuisine that involves meat or seafood marinated in a sauce of vinegar and garlic, browned in oil, and simmered in the marinade.

This is a very delicious dish that I grew up eating.

2 1/2 lbs. chicken (whatever u prefer)
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 c. vinegar
2 c. water
Whole peppercorns ( to taste )
1 1/2 c. soy sauce
2 bay leaves
4-5 peeled Idaho potatoes ( optional )
Tbs vegetable oil

Brown chicken in large pot with oil.
Place the rest of the ingredients in the pot and simmer until chicken is tender, about 1 hour. Serve hot over cooked rice with green veggies, such as broccoli, bok Choy or green beans. It can also be cooked in a crock pot on low setting all day. This easy recipe can be prepared ahead and it freezes well. Serves 6 to 8.
