      chicken and pork adobo looks delicious. Both would release juicy meat flavor but I would remove the pork fats first. Great for hot pot dinner for a family of 4 or 6 person. I love meat recipes, only have them 2 x a week. The rest are vegetarian days ! Voted up

      This looks like a good recipe and combining pork and chicken at once in one food makes it seem like you have 2 different foods. Your images of the chicken and pork adobo do look tasty and delicious.
