Adobo Chicken - Cooking Light
This is such an EASY and TASTY recipe for weeknights. It only takes about 15mins to prepare and the longer it sits in the pot the better it gets. I have noted my changes below to make the prep even easier and recipe even healthier.

1 tablespoon canola oil
8 bone-in chicken thighs, skinned (I buy the ORGANIC Boneless thighs from Trader Joe's)
2 cups chopped onion (I buy the already cut onion in the bag from TJ)
5 garlic cloves, minced (I buy the ready-to-mince garlic cloves from TJ)
6 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons honey (I use the Agave Nectar from TJ)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 bay leaf
**For the Rice to use the 3 Min Brown Rice from TJ
1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan; sauté 4 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove chicken from pan. Add onion to pan; sauté 3 minutes. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute, stirring frequently.
2. Return chicken to pan. Add soy sauce and next 5 ingredients (through bay leaf); bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook 12 minutes. Uncover and cook 20 minutes or until chicken is done and sauce thickens. Discard bay leaf. Serve over rice.
