Filipino Chicken Adobo with Quail eggs

Chicken Adobo has gotta be one of the most famous dishes in Philippines.  I’m not into it so much but my sister is.  I prefer the pork adobo (pork belly adobo).  There are many ways to prepare Adobo, like some people marinate the meat overnight and some fry it first before braising.  I’m no Adobo expert, so I guess whatever works for you is fine.  This is a very simple recipe and was satisfying to eat:)  I got the recipe from the Food Network website!

quail eggs (hard boiled,shelled)





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.
