Philippine Chicken Adobo with Smashed Sweet Potatoes

Directions

  1. Coat an extra-large skillet with cooking spray; heat skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, half at a time, in hot skillet until brown. Set aside.
  2. In a 4-quart slow cooker combine onions, bay leaves, and garlic. Add sweet potatoes. Top with chicken. In a medium bowl combine coconut milk, soy sauce, vinegar, and cayenne pepper. Pour mixture over chicken.
  3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 6 1/2 hours or on high-heat setting about 3 hours or until chicken and sweet potatoes are tender.
  4. To serve, remove chicken with a slotted spoon; cover and keep warm. Transfer sweet potatoes to a medium bowl; mash slightly with a potato masher. Cover and keep warm.

Cook and stir over medium heat until slightly thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Serve chicken with mashed sweet potatoes and sauce. Garnish with chives and black pepper.

I made this tonight for the first time and husband says, make it again so it's a keeper. It was pretty tasty and the other person that commented is right, it's not an simple recipe but the rewards are worth the effort.

I just made this for the first time. It is NOT a simple recipe - you have to saute the chicken before putting it in the slow cooker. After slow cooking, you mash the potatoes & finish the broth. So there's prep & finish tasks, in addition to 6 hours of slow cooking.



All that being said, it is a DELICIOUS meal. I doubled (tripled?) the cayenne pepper, so this was spicy, slightly sweet, & filling. I also used olive oil to saute the chicken instead of non-stick spray. The next time I make this I think I will use butter.
