Instant Pot Chicken Adobo

A classic Filipino Chicken Adobo recipe calls for marinating the meat, then browning it before cooking in a marinade.  If you are short on time or like to keep things simple, you can skip the marinating and/or browning!  You can make this into a “dump dinner” by simply dumping the chicken, garlic, bay leaves, soy sauce, vinegar and water into the Instant Pot and pressure cooking it for 15 minutes!  Dinner is ready!

Instant Pot Chicken Adobo Recipe

Cook time:  20 mins
Total time:  20 mins

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • ⅓ cup white vinegar
  • ⅓ cup water
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • 1 head garlic cloves, peeled
  • 3 bay leaves
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp oil

Marinate the chicken
Mix the vinegar, water, soy sauce and pepper in a cup to make Adobo marinade.
Put the chicken in a bowl and pour Adobo marinade over it. Add garlic cloves and bay leaves to the bowl. Marinate the chicken in refrigerator overnight (or for 20 minutes on the counter).

Brown the chicken (optional)
Put the Instant Pot on a Saute setting. Add the oil in the Instant Pot. Take the chicken pieces out of the sauce and saute right in the Instant Pot in batches until the chicken is just browned (2 minutes per side).

Cook the chicken
Add browned chicken, Adobo sauce, garlic and bay leaves to the Instant Pot. Close the lid and turn the valve to Sealing position.
Press the "Manual" or "Pressure Cook" button and set the time for 15 minutes on High Pressure. When it's done cooking, do the Quick Release (QR) of the steam.

Reduce the sauce (optional)

Remove the chicken from the pot and switch the Instant Pot to a Saute mode. Cook the Adobo sauce for 5 minutes, or until it's thickened and reduced to a desired consistency.
