healthy chicken adobo
CRNAMom Chicken Adobo

A variation of the traditional Filipino dish. This recipe is easy to prepare, and is lower in salt and fat. You can also make it and eat it over a few days time if kept refrigerated, since this type of dish retains its flavor and freshness very well.


half cup of low sodium soy sauce

half cup white vinegar

5 cloves of garlic - chopped

3 bay leaves

pinch of black pepper

1.5 to 2 pounds of chicken breasts (cubed), thighs, drumsticks (legs), de-skinned

1.5 pounds of red potatoes, cut into quarters or halves

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1 tablespoon of ketchup

sprig of rosemary


Simmer the garlic and olive oil in a stock pot or deep pan until slightly browned (caramelized).  Then add the chicken, vinegar, soy sauce, bay leaves, ketchup and let cook for 30 minutes on low heat (slow cooking the adobo creates the best results, if you have time).  Then add the potatoes, rosemary and black pepper to season the dish, and cook for another 30 minutes on low heat.  Remove and serve over brown rice (optional).
