Is it really THAT good?

Today I am making one of Keith's all-time favorite recipes. He requests this A LOT! It is Chicken Adobo. He used to work for a Filipino company and all the ladies were always making authentic being chicken adobo. So he wanted me to try to re-create it. that was some pressure. So here it is...chicken adobo and it is HEALTHY and SIMPLE! My 2 favorite adjectives when it comes to cooking! Enjoy!!


1 onion, sliced
8 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 cup soy sauce (I used a low-sodium wheat-free tamari)
1/2 cup vinegar (I used rice vinegar)
1 cup chicken broth (I used low-sodium)
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2-3 bay leaves
3 lbs.. chicken (I actually used a mixture of thighs and breasts...6 small thighs and 2 breasts)

Place chicken in crockpot, then onions, then rest of ingredients. Don't stir. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours. Remove bay leaves before serving. Serve over rice (I used brown rice) and don't forget to pour the liquid over the rice!

**The nutritional information does not include the rice and it is for the recipe as written. The sodium is really high so that is why I used low sodium ingredients.
