Adobo and Me

I was only in grade school when I 1st learned how to cook adobo (pork and chicken). My mother taught me how to do it and when I was in high school, I learned that there are different ways of cooking it. Some people liked it with eggs on top, others with potatoes and more sauce. But what i liked most is the adobo that I learned way back in grade school, the one marinated overnight and then cooked until the sauce was absorbed. This how we do it...


  • 1 kl chicken, (breast or legs will do)
  • 10 cloves garlic
  • bay leaf
  • ground pepper
  • 1/2 c soysauce
  • 1/4 c vinegar
  • oil for frying


  1. In a bowl, combine the following ingredients: soysauce, vinegar, garlic, bay leaf, pepper and chicken. Marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  2. In a pan, heat oil. Saute the garlic and then the chicken until golden brown. Then add in the marinade and a cup of water. Bring to boil and cook until the soy sauce mixture was almost absorbed by the meat. Note: Make sure that you cook it over low to medium heat to avoid having a burned but uncooked chicken. The water actually helps cook your chicken fast. Likewise, if your adobo is too salty, you may add some sugar (half teaspoon or depending on how you like it).
  3. Serve hot with rice and boiled or salted eggs or fried potatoes on the side.

Cook Time: Plus 30 min or overnight for marinade

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: Serves 4 to six persons

      Thanks...and oh!the salted egg is the red egg popular here in the Philippines. I think it is an egg of a duck that was preserved in salt...sometimes we eat it with fresh tomato and rice.

      Your recipe sounds delightful. I am wondering what your 'salted egg' is, however.

      Also happy to welcome you to HubPages!
