Filipino Chicken Adobo

This was requested at the dinner thread. It can also be done with pork.

2 lbs. skinless boneless chicken thighs, cubed
1/2 cup low sodium Soy Sauce
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup whole garlic cloves, smashed
2 bay leaves
1/2 tsp. whole peppercorns
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbs. Sriracha hot sauce
4 cups water
Chopped green onions for garnish

Marinate the chicken in the mixture without the water for at least 30 minutes. Dry off the chicken cubes, reserving the marinade, and fry in a small amount of oil to color.
Add the marinade and water to the chicken and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and simmer uncovered 40-60 minutes. Remove the bay leaves and serve over rice or cooked Lo Mein noodles. Garnish with chopped green onions.

This really sounds delicious. In fact, I'll probably make it this week, since it just so happens I have all the ingredients on hand already. Well, close anyway. I don't have any thigh meat, but I do have a dozen legs in the freezers. I'm thinking they would work just as well.

Drum sticks should work just fine Steve. I've made it with whole bone in thighs before. Pork shoulder chunks work well too.
The flavor is really intense and I think you'll like it. Thanks for taking a look.

That sounds good... here's the recipe my Dad brought
back from there back in the 1950s.. it is one of my favorites!

1 chicken, cut up, skinned
1 head of garlic, chopped
1 large onion, chopped or sliced.
3/4 cup Soy sauce
3/4 cup White vinegar

Place chicken in a pot just big enough to hold it.
Layer onion and garlic between chicken pieces.
Add soy and vinegar, then enough water to just
cover chicken. (He always added a 1/4 cup more of
each if more than 1 cup of water was needed.)
Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 1/2 hour.
Serve over rice.

(This version is much better with bone-in chicken.)

I'll have to bug a couple of the Filipino nurses for their recipes.
