This Slow Cooker Chicken Adobo is a simple and humble dish, modernized a bit by the use of Yondu Sauce.


3 pounds chicken thighs or drumsticks
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, sliced
6 garlic cloves, chopped
4 slices ginger, the size of a quarter, crushed
cup Yondu sauce or light soy sauce (gluten-free)
2 tablespoons soy sauce (gluten-free)
cup white or apple cider vinegar
cup water
1 bay leaf

Cornstarch Slurry:
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water

Cooking Method

2.  Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet and add onion, garlic and ginger; cook for a few minutes until fragrant; remove to slow cooker using a slotted spoon.

3.  Add another tablespoon of oil to pan. Add chicken pieces and brown on both sides. This may take a few batches depending on the size of your skillet. Remove chicken to slow cooker. Mix together Yondu sauce, soy sauce, vinegar and water. Pour on top of chicken. Place bay leaf inside slow cooker.
