Chicken Adobo Recipe


Hi guys! I have here a very easy and simple dish yet delicious. Filipinos love Adobo. There are a variety of this dish. There’s chicken adobo, pork adobo, adobong pusit and etc. Filipinos from different parts of the Philippines have their own version of Adobo but the main ingredients that are always present are soy sauce and vinegar.

Some of my Visayan friends, their Adobo is different too. They marinade the meat and fry it. They discard the sauce but still they call it Adobo.  It was then I realized that Adobo can also be dry or with sauce.
