This is a Filipino recipe which was carried down to me. I just added the jalapeno for spice and used the chicken wings. You can use pork or whole cut up chicken, too. This is great as an appetizer or you can serve it as a meal with steamed Jasmine rice. Enjoy this! you will never go back to the same ol' hot wings.

Directions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the wings, and boil for 5 to 8 minutes. Drain in a colander and run under warm water. Return to the dry pot, and add the vinegar, water, bay leaves, peppercorns, onion and jalapenos. Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.

  • Season the chicken with soy sauce, and simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced by 1/2. Remove the wings to a colander, and set aside. Add a few garlic cloves to the liquid in the pan, and simmer until the sauce has a syrupy consistency, and the jalapenos have burst open releasing all of their seeds into the reduction.

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken wings and the remaining garlic. Cook and stir until the garlic is tender and the wings have browned, about 10 minutes. Return wings to the sauce to coat before serving.

AWESOME! I did mine in a crockpot and by the end the chicken was so moist it pretty much fell right off the bone! I shredded the meat and added it to a tortilla with some Louisiana Jalapeno Pepper Hot sauce - perfect!! I cooked the chicken on high in the crockpot for the first couple of hours to get the chicken cooked then I turned it on low for the rest of the day. Thanks for the recipe!!! Read More

I grew up on chicken adobo and hoped that the jalapenos would add some zip. Didn't reall. Also I always find chicken gets pretty dried out with the excessive cooking times required. Need to find an adobo recipe that keeps the great flavor without drying out the chicken. Read More

The chicken was very dry and I even doubled the liquid so it would cover most of the chicken in the pot. I gave it 2 stars due to the fact that it did smell very good. Read More

I really enjoyed the flavors and it made my kitchen smell delicious. I actually used the marinade on chicken breasts instead of wings and it was SO good! I am looking forward to making the wings soon. Read More

I've made many chicken wings and I've made adobo but because I've never combined the two I chose to make exactly as written. Boil the wings first? What would be the point of this? I went ahead and did it and I'm not exactly sure what goes on in that process but what I do know is that I will be doing it from now on when I make buffalo wings. The skin got SO crispy and delicious. These wings were really good and had excellent flavor. My only complaint is that they did get overdone. I think the cook time could be reduced and yet still get the full flavor of the recipe. Read More
