My kids don’t like chicken in the crock pot, so I don’t make it much. But I found this easy recipe for Adobo Chicken in allrecipes and made it last night. Everyone loved it (even David, my pickiest eater.)
1 whole chicken (3-4 pounds) – the recipe says to cut it into pieces, but there’s something about cutting through chicken bones that skeeves me out, so I just put the whole thing into the crock pot (after taking out the bag-o-stuff from the chicken’s “cavity”, of course)
1 sweet onion, sliced
3/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup vinegar (I used white wine vinegar)
lots of crushed garlic (ok, I cheated and used lots of garlic from a jar)
Put the chicken in the crock pot. Pieces. Whole. Whatever. Put the onion slices on top of the chicken. Mix together the garlic, soy sauce, and vinegar, and pour over the chicken. Cook on low for 8-10 hours.
I served it with cooked rice (which I kind of burned, but we all ate it anyway). The sauce is really thin, so I poured it over the rice (which probably helped with the burnt issue). I also served it with steamed carrots, broccoli and cauliflower, which added some color to the meal.
Easy and delicious and lots of left-overs.
