Easy Pollo Adobado

Hot and spicy, this Pollo Adobado dish is a great one to serve up for a weeknight dinner. My recipe is similar to the traditional Mexican dish Pollo Adobado, also known as adobo de pollo or pollo en adobo.

Adobado is basically chicken marinated in chile and spices and then baked in the oven. The Mexicans use guajillo chile peppers, but you can use any chile you find in your local store. And feel free to add more or less chile peppers depending on how spicy you like things! This dish has bags and bags of flavor – as well as using chicken broth, I also add chicken bouillon granules to really ramp up the chickeny taste.

Plus it’s super quick to put together – just 15 minutes before you shove everything in the oven to bake all that flavor into the chicken.

To make Pollo Adobado, you will need the following ingredients:
