Growing up, this was one of my favorite dishes that my dad cooked for us! We’re Filipino, so I wanted to dig into my roots a little bit tonight and make a classic Filipino dish – chicken adobo. But, I specifically wanted Instant Pot chicken adobo.
If you haven’t heard of the instant pot yet, where have you been? It’s all the rage right now because it cooks foods quickly and can help keep more nutrients intact due to the cooking method. Plus, it’s less clean up. Seriously.
As a mom, that’s a big one for me. You can sautée, pressure cook, and so much more in just one place! YEEEESS!
An ingredient that is used in classic adobo recipes is soy. We avoid soy for the most part due to these reasons that I wrote on the blog before. Soy sauce is a common ingredient in a lot of Asian dishes, but thankfully coconut aminos is a good alternative. It’s not perfect, but it definitely will do the trick in most cases. This was one of the tweaks that I had to do from our family recipe.
I loved how this recipe turned out and I’m happy I get another recipe to add to my Instant Pot! You can do this recipe in a skillet as well!
Are you ready to try some Instant Pot Chicken Adobo?
