Ingredients for 5-6 guests:

* 6 Chicken Pieces, complete legs or breasts without skin
* 1 Cup White Vinegar

2) Put the chillies we just soaked in the blender where you will blend your Adobo; add to the blender bowl the garlic, the onion, the cloves, the peppercorns, the cinnamon, the cumin and the vinegar. Once well blended, we are almost finished with our Adobo marinade; the only step left is to add salt to season it the way you like it.

3) Season the pieces of chicken and place them in a glass container.

4) Spread the Adobo over the chicken pieces and put the chicken to marinate in the refrigerator for three hours.

5) After three hours have passed, place the chicken in the pressure cooker and add all the Adobo you have left.

6) Cook the chicken with the Adobo in the pressure cooker for 10 minutes, until the chicken is perfectly cooked and ready to eat.
