Chicken Adobo Recipe

Chicken Adobo is a popular dish and cooking process in the Philippine Cuisine that involves with meat or seafood marinated with vinegar or soy sauce, browned in oil, and simmered. While the Philippine adobo dish can be considered adobo in the Spanish sense—a marinated dish, the Philippine usage is much more specific. The name itself was adopted from Spanish and became known to Filipino Cuisine.

3 pieces dried laurel leaves
4 tablespoon soy sauce
4 tablespoon vinegar
3 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup cooking oil
salt and pepper

  1. Place the chicken, soy sauce and garlic mixed together in a large container 
  2. Add cooking oil in a pan and apply heat 
  3. On the hot pan, put-in the marinated chicken 
  4. Add the dried bay leaves and simmer for about 15 to 30 minutes or until the chicken is tender 
  5. Add vinegar, salt, and pepper and simmer for about 10 minutes 
  6. Add little water if chicken dries up before fully cooked 
  7. Chicken Adobo will be quiet dry at the end of cooking time
