Instant Pot Chicken Adobo is a tangy and garlicky Filipino chicken dish served over steamed rice and made easy in the pressure cooker!

Why This Recipe Works

The Instant Pot saves time and yields the same tender and juicy chicken legs as if they were braised for hours.


Chicken legs drumsticks Garlic cloves Brown sugar Black pepper Bay leaves Soy sauce White vinegar Fish sauce Onion Chicken stock Cornstarch Steamed white rice for serving Green onions thinly sliced (for serving)

Place all the ingredients (except the cornstarch slurry, rice and green onion) in a ziplock bag and shake to mix and coat everything.


Place the bag in the fridge for at least 8 hours or overnight (up to 12 hours).

Pour the contents of the bag in the Instant Pot.

Pressure cook on high for 12 minutes and allow it to naturally release for 10 minutes before releasing the remaining pressure.
