Step 1

Heat 1 tbsp. oil in large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Using paper towels, pat chicken dry; season all over with Adobo. Add chicken pieces to skillet skin-side down. Cook, flipping once, until golden brown on both sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer chicken to plate.

Step 2

Pour remaining oil into skillet. Stir in onions and bell peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are soft, about 7 minutes. Sprinkle Sazón over vegetables; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds more. Pour coconut milk into skillet with vegetables. Transfer chicken to skillet skin-side up, arranging in single layer; bring coconut milk to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, basting chicken occasionally with sauce, until chicken is cooked through (internal temperature will register 165˚F on quick read thermometer when inserted into thickest part of thigh without touching the bone), about 25 minutes

Step 3

Transfer chicken to platter; loosely cover with foil. Increase heat to medium-high. Simmer coconut milk sauce, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly. Stir in cilantro; season with Adobo, if desired

Step 4

To serve, pour sauce over chicken. Serve with rice and tortillas.
