Chicken Adobo

Tasty Filipino chicken marinated in Asian sauces and cooked to perfection


We’re headed to the Philippines with Chicken Adobo. This recipe was passed down to me by my grandma’s caregiver and is super easy to make. You just got to be patient while the chicken marinades, then cooks. I’ve been making this recipe for over 10 years and the flavors do not disappoint. Serve the chicken and sauce over rice with a little veggies on the side and voila dinner is ready to go.
