Whole30 adobo?!

Before I started the Whole30, I was a little sad to find out that soy sauce is forbidden on the diet. However, after reading blogs and forums here and there, I found out that there’s a Whole30-friendly substitute for soy sauce: coconut aminos! A bottle of coconut aminos is super expensive online, but luckily I was able to find some at The Vitamin Shoppe. Soy sauce is one of the main ingredients in Adobo, a well-known Filipino dish. I’d like to attempt to paleo-fy traditional Filipino dishes this month. Anywho, here’s how I made Whole30-friendly chicken adobo:

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle of coconut aminos
  • 1 cup of white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of applesauce (I normally use sugar. To make it Whole30-friendly, I used applesauce as sweetener.)
  • 1 tbsp of peppercorns
  • 3-4 bay leaves
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, sliced or minced
  • 1 1/2 lbs of chicken (Bone-in. I recommend thighs or drumsticks. Chicken breast will dry out.)

  1. Place all ingredients in a pot as shown in the picture above. (There’s no right or wrong order.)
  2. Simmer on low – medium fire for 30min – 1 hour.

That’s it! Easy peasy 🙂
