Chicken Adobo

Uwajimaya | Chicken Adobo Recipe
Some call adobo the national dish of the Philippines and try it once, and you'll understand why. Chicken is simmered in vinegar and soy sauce mixture resulting in a succulent, mouth watering dish.


3 lbs. chicken, cut into pieces
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
4 garlic cloves, mashed
5 bay leaves
1 tsp. peppercorn
1/4 cup soy sauce
dash of pepper


Place chicken pieces in a pot, rinse and drain. Add vinegar, water, garlic, bay leaves, peppercorn and a dash of pepper to the pot. Cover pot and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer about 20 minutes or until chicken pieces are cooked. Add soy sauce (to taste) over the meat, stir and cook for about 5 more minutes. Serve over steamed rice.
