coconut adobo chicken on plate

Coconut Adobo Chicken

Sauce is what makes a dish. Imagine a juicy chicken thigh cooked to perfection…not bad, right? But now imagine it smothered with a savory, sweet and salty coconut sauce simmered down to a thick gravy…much better.

Sometimes you have to switch things up. A wise woman in Canada once told me this. I started putting my wallet in my left rear pocket instead of my right and it worked. My brain had to think about things differently when it felt that bump in the wrong side of my pants.

You can do the same thing with food. But don’t put it in your pants. That’s just messy, folks. Seriously, if you’ve been eating bland foods, try a little sweet and savory. It’s good to trick your brain now and then.

While I was simmering this delightful coconut adobo chicken in my Pioneer Woman pan, Spidey the cat was outside committing murder. He killed his first mouse today. I guess I should be glad that we won’t have as many mouse pellets in our closets, but I felt sorry for the little rodent. Spidey was very proud of himself. His actual name is Simon Ciderman Taylor, but we call him Spidey for short.

Back to the foods. This is an easy dish that will leave you licking the pan. The combination of coconut milk, (use full fat, life is short and taste is important) soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and honey give you all the things you need in a mouth-watering sauce. Throw in some fresh garlic and you’ve got a real delight.

I had to adjust the amount of soy sauce and throw in some brown sugar to add just a little color and sweetness to the dish. I used about 3/4 cup of soy sauce and 2 tbsp. of brown sugar. You can adjust this to your liking. Also, squeeze some limes in there because it tastes good and nobody wants scurvy.

You can serve this dish over white rice or all by itself. I’m trying to keep it fairly Paleo so I skipped the rice tonight and served it with a side of carrots roasted in balsamic vinegar. Oh, and please do leave the skin on your chicken thighs when you cook them. The fat is an essential part of the sauce flavor and nobody wants a naked bird in their pan.

  • 1/4 cup water

  72. I am the business owner of JustCBD brand (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently trying to grow my wholesale side of company. It would be great if anybody at targetdomain can help me . I considered that the very best way to do this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd retailers. I was really hoping if anybody at all could recommend a qualified site where I can purchase Vape Shop Leads I am already examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the best solution and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?

  73. i am amazed how cheap broadband internet is during these year, isps have some promo too-

  76. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  77. I just want to say I am just beginner to weblog and absolutely loved this website. More than likely I’m planning to bookmark your blog post . You surely have great stories. With thanks for sharing your web page.
