Chicken Adobo!

We’re suppose to be in Seattle tonight to watch a performance of the Seattle symphony but hubby is just too tired and still has so much work to do!  What a waste of tickets, but I’d rather not watch something than be with someone who will just sleep the entire performance of the show!!  Anyways, I’ll just post some foodie recipes we prepared these last couple of weeks ( I’ve been slacking in updating my food blogs last week, so I’m trying to catch up).  So, Chicken Adobo is so popular in the Philippines, it’s considered to be the national dish in our country.  I prefer “humba” over adobo, because whenever I make adobo I can never get it right(either too vinegary or salty) and I’d like to think that people like my humba a lot!  haha..I got this recipe on food network ( search for filipino chicken adobo).  Very easy and yummy recipe this one:-) Here are the ingredients:


Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Cover and marinate chicken for 1-3 hours. Bring to boil, then lower heat. Cover and let simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover and simmer until sauce is reduced and thickened, and chicken is tender, about 20 more minutes. Serve with steamed rice.

I use whole chicken,then just cut them into pieces..

filipino soy sauce and vinegar

perfect with steam rice


someone loved adobo with rice and dog food!
