Filipino Chicken Adobo


One of my favorite Filipino dishes is Chicken Adobo. A simple dish that goes with rice and tastes delicious. This easy recipes is a must when I go home and meet up with the family. Slow cooked with the chicken falling off the bone…oh man! My mouth is watering right now!

Delicious Rating: Hello food goodness! For me chicken adobo is almost like a comfort food that I could eat while snuggled in a blanket on the couch watching a movie. All the flavors meld so well to give it such a delicious flavor and the chicken is so tender, decease juicy, price and falls right off the bone. The brown sugar cuts the vinegar and also thickens up the sauce while the bay leaves add that hint of herbs on the palate. Serve over rice for a different dinner recipe that your family is sure to enjoy!

  1. Wow! This is a delicious recipe! Big hit with the husband! We ended up having it 3 weeks

  2. Made your recipe last night and we ALL loved it. I did not have red wine vinegar, so I used 1 cup of the white. I added enough water to fully cover the sides of the chicken. The ONLY thing I added that was not in your recipe was 1/2 tsp. of black pepper. Thanks for sharing your recipe!!

  3. Loved it. Try adding some pineapple juice to the marinade and let me know what you think.
