A classic Filipino recipe now made gluten-free, paleo, top-8 allergy-free, and in the crockpot! This healthy Slow Cooker Chicken Adobo is perfectly tender and tangy with its combination of vinegar and coconut aminos in place of the typical soy sauce!
Boy, do I have a ton of fantastic slow cooker chicken recipes to start sharing with you this winter season! My arsenal of slow cooker chicken recipes is large and always growing larger. That crockpot really is the easiest method for cooking chicken. You can not mess it up! Chicken + whatever else you want + crockpot = deliciousness! The hardest part about it is waiting for it to cook!
Over the summer I got into trying out a bunch of regional chicken dishes. My family enjoyed all the taste testing and now I have so many chicken recipe to share! Not all slow cooker, but a fair amount with that nifty device! Chicken Adobo is a Filipino dish that’s actually super simple in the ingredients it uses. It’s a mix of white vinegar, soy sauce, a bay leaf, black pepper, garlic, and onion.
The acidic vinegar with the salty, tangy soy sauce makes the chicken super tender once cooked (traditionally braised). Throw it in the slow cooker and it just enhances all that magic even more! Since soy is a big NO here on Strength and Sunshine, what’s the soy alternative? Coconut aminos, of course! I wasn’t sure what to expect flavor wise when I actually tried it, but it was rather delicious! It’s a hard to describe combination but it works so well!
This definitely needs to be a slow cooker chicken dish you add to your “cold weather meals bucket list”! (If you don’t have one…you should make one!) I always thought “adobo” had to do with peppers. You know…chipotle peppers in adobo sauce? I guess it can be this combination too! Different regions of the world, different meanings! Regardless, I know you’ll be a fan of this slow cooker chicken adobo (…right when it comes out of the slow cooker…patience!)
Slow Cooker Chicken Adobo
- Layer your chicken in the slow cooker first and then all the rest of the ingredients.
- Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours.
Mmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about this chicken adobo! Serve it with some rice (or…something grain-free for paleo), veggies, and you have a nice hearty gluten-free dinner on your hands! When I get that slow cooker out, my family always knows they’ll be eating well that night! A total crowd-pleaser all around with this one and simply soy-free 😉
So tell me:
+ Do you like experimenting with regional flavors? You know I do!
