Chicken Adobo (Filipino style)

Seriously folks, I've never cooked such a quick and easy meal in my life. It is ridiculous how fast this cooks, and apparently if you like meat this shit is pretty good.

1 package chicken bone in skin on (I use thighs)
1 WHOLE head of garlic chopped
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
2 bay leaves
2 cups water
2 cups uncooked rice

In a large pot (I use a dutch oven but a deep pot will do) brown chicken over high heat for about 6 minutes. Throw in everything else. Cover. Simmer for about 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Cook rice per instructions and serve chicken with all the juices over the rice. I think it taste a lot like fried rice, my husband says it taste like home, the shit, awesome and sooooo good. He has eaten it like 3 times in the last month and already wants more. It makes amazing left overs and reheats great. Actually we serve it as single portions at my house, so you can reserve some rice for left overs with out it getting soggy over night. Also, you can use the left over chicken the next day shredded to make a great chicken fried rice or even a chicken salad sammy with a bit of an Asian kick. Seriously that chicken with some mayo and pepper on some wonder bread WHOAH!

I will post pics of this next time I make it and my dumb ass remembers the camera!

This whole meal is knock you on your ass good and sooo fucking easy. Your a moron if you don't make it right now! The greatest part is that all of the ingredients are things I have on hand every single night. This means that all I have to do is pull some chicken out of the freezer and I have a quick meal that is ready to go in the amount of time it takes you to chop garlic!

This is my fiance's fave too! He's soooo crazy over this. He likes the pork adobo version better though. We also make variations here like chicken-pork adobo! :)

OMG I made this and it is sooo freaking good! AND EASY! Oh my! I ate half a loaf of french bread with it because I could NOT stop dipping in the sauce. I think I could probably just DRINK the sauce by itself it is soo good. YUM!! TWO THUMBS UP!
