Begin this Pressure Cooker Chicken Adobo and Rice from Simply Recipes by blending a handful of pantry staples you probably already have on hand. Combining onion, garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, peppercorns, bay leaves, and a little bit of sugar creates a tangy, salty, slightly sweet sauce which gives the chicken its unmistakably Filipino flavor. To ensure a rich flavorful sauce and tender chicken it’s recommended that a mix of bone-in, skin-on chicken legs and thighs are used for this chicken adobo. If you prefer you could easily use boneless skinless chicken thighs for this recipe.
Throw together a salad or cook up some fresh veggies while the Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker does it’s magic. You’ll have a complete dinner ready to serve in less than an hour.
