The Filipino Chicken Adobo Recipe

Chicken Adobo Recipe

I'm still trying to practice my cooking skills and my Mom is trying to teach me since she's really good at it. Well obviously, I won't be overweight if she's not good at the kitchen right? You could go and ask my relatives, friends and even neighbors they really loved my Mom's cooking. Some of them even sent me private messages telling me that they miss my Mom's cooking and not me :( 

Luckily, thanks to YouTube I was able to find a fellow Filipino blogger Vanjo Merano of Panlasang Pinoy who's now at Chicago. I've tried 2 of his recepies and oh yeah it's delicious and a great tutorial. He got a lot of YouTube views already his videos are in Tagalog-English a lot of people really got interested in his dishes since well, we all know Filipino foods are really delicious. So I asked for his permission to let me use his videos in the blog and share it here with everyone. 

So for today, we have the Filipino Chicken Adobo Recipethe most requested and most searched by a lot of people. Filipino or not they really loved the Filipino Chicken Adobo and they really want to know how to cook the food themselves. One of my Australian friends was able to eat this and she set aside her spoon and fork, and used her fingers instead to eat. (LOL) She really loved it!

Chicken Adobo Recipe

Below are the ingrediates for the Filipino Chicken Adobo quoted from Panlasang Pinoy: 
2 lbs chicken, cut into serving pieces
3 pcs dried bay leaves
4 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp vinegar
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 to 2 cups water
1/4 cup cooking oil
1/2 tablespoon white sugar
salt and whole peppercorn

I know I've got a lot of foreign readers here which are mostly from the US and UK, so I made an English version of the instructions basing on the video. 

Filipino Chicken Adobo

1. Mix the Chicken and soy sauce.
2. Put the garlic and mix.
3. Marinate it at least an hour.
4. Place the marinated chicken in a hot cooking pan. Include the garlic.
5. After few minutes add the soy sauce of the marinated chicken.
6. Add some water.
7. Let it boil.
8. Add the bay leaves and peppercorn then mix. 
9. Lower the heat and cover the cooking pan. Let it simmer until the chicken is soft.
10. Add the vinegar then wait for it to boil then mix.
11. Let it cook for few minutes.
12. Add some sugar. You can also add some salt but taste the adobo first if it meets your taste and not too salty for you.
13. Let it cook for few minutes and then you can turn of the heat then serve.

So let me thank Vanjo for giving me the permission to use his videos here in Exotic Philippines to share with everyone. If you're planning to cook this, share with us if you've done it successfully and if you loved the taste.
