My Favorite Filipino Dish Chicken Adobo Recipe
Growing up my favorite dish was my mom's famous Chicken Adobo. I could not get enough of it. As I got older and finally learned how to cook Chicken Adobo and now I want to share it with everyone.
1-2 LBS of Drumsticks, Thighs, Chicken Wings, or Chicken Breast
(Which ever type of chicken is your favorite)
1 TBSP Black Pepper Corns
2 Pieces of Bay Leaves
1-2 TBSP of Cooking Oil
1 Cup of Soy Sauce
1/2 Cup of White Vinegar
1 Medium Onion Chopped up however you like (I prefer strips)
3-4 Cloves of Garlic Minced
- In a medium pot add 1-2 TBSP of oil, let oil heat up, add garlic and chicken and lightly brown.
- Add soy sauce, vinegar, bay leaves and peppercorn let simmer for about 20-25 minutes. (if you feel like you want to add more liquids for every 1 cup of soy sauce you add you must add 1/2 cup vinegar.)
- Add onions after 20-25 minutes of chicken simmering and cook onions to your liking. I like my onions soft so I cook the adobo for about another 15 minutes.
And now you have chicken adobo. Easy to make and a quick dinner to throw together, serve it with white rice and you got yourself dinner. And the best part of this recipe you don't always have to use chicken, I love to mix it up and sometimes make it with pork.
