I'd like to halve the recipe. How would you suggest I do this?

I have four bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs weighing 2.25 lbs.

Ingredients here are easily divisible in half, and probably need less cooking time - maybe half or 2/3. Check chicje6n internal temp reaches 160-165F.
Or "cook once, eat twice." Make the whole recipe, serve half and freeze other half for a future meal.

Should read: chicken internal temp

Thank you! Turns out that I cut the cooking time short by just five minutes for the lid on portion. It turned out great.

If you have the room in your freezer, I'd make the full recipe worth of the sauce, and divide that in half. Freeze the half you don't need to use, and cook your chicken in the other half. Adobo freezes very well, and that way you'd have it on hand for a future dinner. Then you can add it to what ever sort of meat you prefer- pork or chicken, or even beef. It actually improves with time, so the second round will be even tastier. Same goes for any leftovers, by the way.

Well I only had four chicken thighs at the time. I was worried about halving the sauce, so I didn't. I didn't halve anything else, and it turned out great. I did have extra sauce which I'll use on the leftover rice. But you're right, I will make the full recipe next time. Thank you!
