Chicken Adobo

Chicken Adobo is considered the national dish of the Filipinos. The preparation of this dish is relatively easy. Just dump everything into a pot and bring it to simmer. Though there are countless variations of chicken adobo, the basic ingredients of soy sauce, vinegar, garlic , bay leaf and peppercorns makes this dish delicious and tasty. This is one of my husbands ( Canadian ) favourite Filipino dish.


2 - ½ lbs chicken pieces
¼ cup soy sauce
½ cup sugar cane vinegar or rice vinegar
½ head garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon of peppercorns
3 bay leaf
1 thumb size ginger, sliced
1 teaspoon of white sugar
2 cups of water

Cooking Instructions :

  • In a wok or medium sauce pan, saute garlic and ginger. Add the chicken and cook for 3-5 minutes or until chicken turn brown.
  • Add the vinegar, soy sauce , bay leaf , peppercorns and water. Bring to boil and let it simmer under low heat for 30-45 minutes or until chicken is cooked.
  • Continue to cook for 1 more minute or until sauce thickens.
  • Serve with steamed white rice. Enjoy !
