Cheesy Sour Ale Chicken Adobo

Last Sunday Carl and Sofia came over for dinner and this was the menu;

Cheesy Sour Ale Chicken Adobo and Pepperoni and Cheese Daddy Bread.

The Adobo was based on Filipino Adobo but since I had a bottle (or should I say stole my wife's bottle that she was saving, oops) of Lips of Faith La Folie Sour Ale, I replaced the vinegar with that.

Here is the Crock-Pot brand slow cooker friendly recipe that ensued;

4 Chicken Leg Quarters
1 22oz. Bottle Sour Ale (or 2 11oz. Bottles)
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
4 Cloves Garlic, Smashed
1 Small Onion Diced Small
Black Pepper to Taste
1 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Cups Rice
1 T Butter
1 Cup Grated Cheddar (or any other hard cheese that you like)

Combine Chicken, Ale, Soy Sauce, Garlic, Onion and Pepper in Crock Pot brand slow cooker. Cook on High for 6 hours (or whenever the chicken is done to your liking). Remove and shred and bone (means the same as debone, much like pants and depants) Chicken, strain and reserve cooking liquid.

Heat Olive Oil in saucepan until shimmering. Add rice and stir until rice starts to smell nutty. Add 4 cups cooking liquid (add water if you are shy of 4 cups) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in Butter, Cheese and Shredded Chicken. Recover and let rest for 5 minutes.

Serve to your adoring family or any adoring people that happen to be about. If they don't adore you, they get none.
