Updated on November 30, 2011

Brief Intro

In my childhood days when I and my siblings watch our father cook adobo, the scent of sourness and sweetness that tingles your tongue and the tenderness of the pork and the chicken when cooked properly.. And whenever I think about it my stomach gets excited..

      The instructions mention chicken, but the ingredients list does have chicken in the list.

      How much chicken should one add?

      This looks masarap.

      My lovely wife is from the Philippines, and this old farm boy from southern Illinois had to learn to eat a lot of strange food that I had never dreamed existed. Some of it I don't even want to think about. :)
