Chicken Adobo

Chicken Adobo is a staple Filipino dish. Traditionally it is cooked by stewing the chicken in a mixture of vinegarsoy sauce, and garlic, for a long time. 

But who has the time nowadays? 


For this recipe you will need:

4 ingredients, that is it. 

How to Cook

Dump all the ingredients in a pot.


If you are using an Instapot or Ninja Foodi – pressure cook on high for 35 minutes. If your chicken is frozen, cook longer, about 60 minutes. 

Slow Cooker

If you are using a slow cooker – cook on low for about 7-8 hours.

Notes and Reminders

  • I use about 8-12 chicken thighs per 1 bottle of Mama Sita’s Adobo Marinade and 1 can of Coconut Milk
  • Chopped garlic is optional since Mama Sita’s Adobo Marinade already has garlic – I just really love garlic. 
  • Mama Sita’s Adobo Marinade can be found in the Asian or International Food section of most grocery stores. It can also be found in all Filipino Grocery Stores. There are lots of them everywhere! Or good ol’ Amazon
  • Coconut milk makes the stew creamier. If you don’t like the taste of Coconut Milk, you can definitely skip it. Just add more of the Mama Sita’s Marinade or Chicken Broth to replace the liquid. 
  • Best served with white rice. 
  • Serve with Cauliflower Rice if you’re on a keto or low-carb diet. 
  • For leftovers – shred chicken and stir fry with some of the sauce. With this the possibilities are endless! – Chicken Poke Bowl, Chicken Tacos, Chicken Burritos… Yum!
