One of my favorite Filipino cuisine is Adobo. I love the adobo my husband cooks for me. No special add-ons on the recipe, just the right proportion of the ingredients. I challenge myself to cook adobo with a twist and have my hubby do the taste test. *wink*
here's the recipe I am going to try
What you will need:
1 whole chicken, cut into serving pieces, bones intact
1/2 head garlic, peeled and crushed
1 large onion, sliced
1 tsp. peppercorns
4 bay leaves
3 tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup cane vinegar
3 cups of water
3 tbsp. oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Put all the ingredients into a large pot, and mix them well.
Cook under medium heat and bring into a boil for approximately 30-45 minutes or until chicken is cooked and tender and the sauce is thick. After that, add oil and mix it with the chicken.
You can choose to “adjust” the flavor by adding some more spices used for this recipe’s ingredients or you can add stuff to put a twist in your adobo! All time favorites would include hard boiled eggs cut in slices, pineappled tidbits, and coconut milk.
