Chicken Adobo Recipe

Hi friends! I'm beginning to feel like I want to take my blog in a different direction. I still want to post my paper crafting creations but I also want to start posting home decor, recipes and a bit about couponing. Hope that's ok with all of you and you'll still follow me!

Here's a recipe I got from my friend that I LOVE!! It's so yummy and my family really enjoys it.

Chicken Adobo (based off a recipe in the SF Firefighter cookbook)

1/3 c apple cider vintage
1/2 c soy sauce
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
3 bay leaves
1 tbsp black peppercorns
3 pounds of dark meat chicken, bone in and skin removed
2 tbsp brown sugar

Combine first 9 ingredients in a pot and bring to simmer. If you like more sauce (which we do) double the liquid ingredients. Add chicken to pot and use spoon to cover with sauce, bring to boil. Reduce to medium heat, cover and cook for 30 mins. Uncover and cook for 15 more mins. In the last few mins add brown sugar (I use double because I doubled the vinegar and soy sauce) and stir in. Serve with white rice. (In my photo, the rice has the sauce from the chicken stirred into it.)
