Chicken Adobo

I hope my Filipino friends won’t mind me adding a Thai twist to this chicken adobo, but the sweet, rich, and tangy adobo sauce reminds me of a Thai dish called “Palo.” With that said, I couldn’t resist adding my own touch to it. Our family loves it, and we hope you all do too.

I hope my Filipinos friends won’t be mad at me for adding the Thai twist to this amazing dish from their country. It’s just that this yummy sauce reminds me so much of one of our dishes from home so here it is. Chicken Adobo Recipe Ingredients: * 4 chicken drumsticks * 4 chicken thighs * 20 garlic cloves, heavily crushed * Some cracked pepper (optional) * 1 cup apple cider vinegar * 1/2 cup soy sauce * 1 tablespoon black peppercorns * 3 tablespoons brown sugar * 4 bay leaves * 1/2 cup water * Green onions for topping * Rice for serving Instruction 1. Make the marinade : Heavily crush garlic with a knife, rolling pin, or your skillet. Combine the crushed garlic with soy sauce, brown sugar, peppercorn, and apple cider vinegar. Top with bay leaves. 2. Marinade the chicken at least 20 minutes. 3. In the mean time make boiled eggs. In a boiling water, add eggs in the pot and cook in the medium heat for 8 minutes.

Recipe Tip

  1. Vinegar plays a crucial role in this recipe, imparting a tangy flavor that I adore. Filipino cane vinegar is typically preferred by my Filipino friends for its mild and smooth taste compared to white wine vinegar. While I don’t have Filipino cane vinegar in my kitchen at the moment, apple cider vinegar and rice vinegar are suitable alternatives. I opt for apple cider vinegar in my recipe because I believe that if I can enjoy it on its own, it will enhance the flavor of my adobo.
