Sweet yet tangy Adobo Chicken. This recipe is mindless as it takes advantage of the crock pot. This is a great year-round recipe for the busy household!
Chicken Adobo is a Filipino recipe that you can make any where in the world as long as you have a crock pot that you can plug into the wall. Adobo is a spanish word for marinate…so if you have some members of your household who are not very adventurous, then you can truthfully say that you’re making marinated chicken for dinner.
With a sweet and tangy sauce, this taste of the exotic is perfect for nights chicken seems unappealing. You’ll be transported to the lush island paradise minus the volcanoes.
