Coca Cola Chicken Adobo

Today is Friday and it is the 5th day for our Adobo Week.  So I decided to post this Coca Cola Chicken Adobo, which I cooked a few weeks ago. Mind you, this is not your ordinary chicken adobo.  This is one of those salty-sweet kind where softdrinks are used as one of the ingredients.  

I've been using coke and other sodas in my cooking. Since softdrinks (carbonated drinks) like coke is known for its sugary content, I often use it to sweeten my dishes and at the same time it helps tenderize the chicken meat.  Soda tenderizes meat in case you don't know :-).  So,, if you have no pressure cooker and is planning to cook tough meats, use coke!

Check our collections of adobo recipes here.


Chicken thigh - 8 pcs
Coke - 355 ml
Soy Sauce (UFC) - 1/3 c

White Vinegar - 1/2 c
Salt to taste
Garlic, coarsely chopped - 10 cloves
Black pepper, coarsely ground - 1 tsp
Water - 5 c enough to slow-cook the chicken for 1 1/2 hours

Cooking Procedure :

1. In a pot, combine the chicken and the rest of the ingredients except for the coke and bring to a boil.  Simmer for 30 minutes.
2.  Pour the coke on the chicken mixture and bring to a boil.  Simmer for another 60 minutes or until most of the liquids evaporated.  You should be checking the water level every 20 minutes to avoid having your adobo burned.
3.  Let the chicken fry in its own oil

Serve with your favorite boiled vegetables.
