After making sinigang a few times recently, I remembered that I've been wanting to try making chicken adobo in the pressure cooker. I've had a lot of success with my regular chicken adobo recipe, but I decided to look around at other recipes for ideas. I found this recipe which grilled the chicken at the end, and I knew I had a winner. This was extremely simple and really delicious.
- 1¼ cups soy sauce
- 1¼ cups water
- ¾ cup vinegar
- 3 Tablespoons honey
- 1½ Tablespoons minced garlic
- 4 bay leaves
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
- Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate.
- In a pressure cooker, mix soy sauce, water, vinegar, honey, garlic, bay leaves, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, and place the chicken into the pot. Close lid, bring to high pressure, and cook for 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat and let pressure naturally release for 10 minutes. Release any remaining pressure and remove lid.
- Remove chicken, drain on paper towels, and set aside. Discard bay leaves. Return the mixture to a boil, and cook until reduced to about 1½ cups.
- Place chicken on the prepared grill, about 5 minutes on each side, until browned and crisp. Serve with the remaining soy sauce mixture.
I slightly reduced the soy sauce and water from the original recipe, because you don't lose as much liquid pressure cooking as you do boiling for 30-40 minutes.
