Chicken Adobo

One of the most popular Filipino recipe so I am featuring it again but this time the chicken only.

Chicken Adobo is a very easy dish to make wherein chicken pieces are simmered in a blend of soy sauce, garlic, vinegar, black pepper and bay leaf. 


    1 whole chicken, cut into serving pieces (you can also use choice parts if you want)
    4 pcs dried bay leaves
    4 tbsp soy sauce
    2 tbsp vinegar
    1 head garlic, crushed
    1 to 2 cups water
    1/4 cup cooking oil
    1 tbsp white sugar
    whole peppercorn


In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce and garlic then marinade the chicken for at least 3 hours or overnight. Place the cooking oil in a pan. When the oil is hot enough, put  marinated chicken and  cook  until lightly brown. Pour remaining marinade. Add water, dried bay leaves and whole peppercorn. Bring to a boil then simmer for 30 minutes or until the chicken is tender. Add vinegar. Stir and cook for 10 minutes. Add salt and sugar. Serve.

NOTE: Adobo becomes yummier if you store it on the refrigerator and have it reheated.
