My mom makes one of the best chicken adobo dishes out there and to honor her favorite recipe, I made adobo glazed-baked chicken wings using my mom's adobo sauce as the base and then sweetened a bit with coconut milk.
Number of Wings: 16-20 chicken wings
Estimated Cost Per Batch: $5.50
For the chicken wings...
- 16 to 20 chicken wings
- coconut oil spray
- salt and pepper for seasoning
For the adobo glaze...
- 3/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup light soy sauce
- 1/4 cup white distilled vinegar
- 2 garlic cloves, sliced in half
- 5 bay leaves
- 8 grinds freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tsp whole wheat flour
1) Pre heat oven to 400 degrees and line two rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil.
2) Lightly coat with coconut oil spray and then lay a wire rack on top of each baking sheet and then coat again with coconut oil spray.
3) Bake for 50 minutes or until the skin is a light golden brown.
4) While your chicken wings are baking, make your adobo glaze.
5) In a small sauce pan add in the coconut milk, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, bay leaves, and freshly ground black pepper. Whisk to combine.
6) Allow the sauce to simmer on low heat for about 30 minutes.
7) After 30 minutes, slowly whisk in the whole wheat flour and continue to cook for another 10 minutes, then turn off the heat and set aside.
8) Once your chicken wings are cooked, carefully pull them out of the oven, but keep the oven on.
9) Using a pastry brush, glaze the top of each chicken wing with your adobo sauce and then return to the oven to cook for another 10 minutes.
10) Turn off the heat, remove the chicken wings from the oven, and allow the chicken wings to cool for 5 minutes before eating.
11) Serve and enjoy!
