Recipe Chicken Adobo Delicious Food From Philippines


This one food is almost to be found in all the simplest food restaurants on the roadside in the Philippines. With chicken meat cooked with soy sauce and mixed with potatoes, this food is often served when friends are on their way to the Philippines by plane.

This recipe is the simplest that you can get. Not to be mistaken with Mexican adobo, this dish is uniquely prepared by stewing chicken in vinegar and soy sauce.

Note that the first step in the recipe below is crucial if you want your dish to be tasty. Marinating the chicken let’s the meat absorb all the flavors from the marinade, which makes it more flavorful. I understand that this process might take some time, so I usually do this ahead by marinating the chicken the night before making adobo and let it sit covered in the fridge overnight.
