Crock Pot Adobo Chicken Recipe

Crock Pot Adobo Chicken Recipe

This meal comes from the Philippines. This area of the world has been a cross roads for a long time and has been under the rule or influence of several other countries over its history. This recipe shows a lot of south american influence with a hint of asian flavor. Adobo Chicken tastes amazing and adding soy sauce and boo choy gives it a nice twist. The prep is very easy and like most crock pot recipes it’s great for when you want something really good without having to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

We served it over white rice for a great meal. If you felt like it you could pull out some of the water when you’re ready to serve and make a nice sauce to go over the dish using a bit of corn starch to thicken it up.
