Chicken Adobo Recipe
This recipe is considered the national favorite dish of the Philippines. It is a recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation. The combination of the various ingredients actually preserves the chicken.
- 1 (3-4 pound) whole chicken. Cut up into 8 pieces
- ½ cup of soy sauce
- ¾ cup of distilled vinegar (see note below)
- 1 bulb of garlic crushed
- 2 tablespoons of fresh ginger root thinly sliced
- 2 bay leaves
- ½ tablespoons of black peppercorns
Directions In a Dutch oven, combine all of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Once it boils reduce the heat to simmer. Cover the pot and simmer for thirty minutes while basting the chicken occasionally. After 30 minutes, remove the cover and cook until the liquid is reduced to half.
Remove the chicken and place on a serving plate. With a strainer remove all of the liquid from the pot and set this aside.
Serve the chicken over steamed rice and sprinkle the sauce over it and enjoy your meal.
Mastering the balance of vinegar and soy is a challenge. There are many brands of vinegar such as distilled, red wine, apple and soy sauces such as black, low sodium, light. If you are living near a Philippine store you may be able to choose the one you enjoy.
If you are not accustomed to food with a high vinegar taste you might want to experiment with using lesser amounts of vinegar first.
