  1. This looks fantastic! When I was a kid my mom always made this. I love the flavour, and my fav was mixing all that yummy salty sauce with rice and consuming heaps of it at a time. However, I was not a fan of the skin. I never liked that texture but I am curious about trying your recipe though. It’s been forever since I had this dish.

  2. My Mom is from Pampanga considered the culinary capital of PI. She does not add water to the chicken, because lots of water releases from the chicken anyhow. We have a rule of thumb never over 1/4 cup of any type of vinegar, otherwise it tastes way too tart. Yours looks tasty I must say.

  3. That's yummy! It's best to top it on hot steamy rice 😍 This is something worth trying, as usual adobo doesn't really have onions, but yeah, I heard you say you leveled it up.

    The marinade usually just has soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, whole peppercorns, bay leaves, and sugar. And that's the way to cook it πŸ€—

    There are a lot of adobo versions, and each is unique and really good. Some incorporate coco milk, or just "white adobo" by using salt instead of soy sauce. Others include potatoes and hard boiled egg too.

  4. Sharing to those who want to try this but dont have much prep time – Even if you don't marinate the chicken for 12 hours, it will still be flavorful. 30 mins is enough. Also, searing the chicken for about 2 mins on both sides is fine. No need to fry for 14 mins.

  5. You are my favorite chef and the only one I watch if you haven't already please please please make Pho/Spicy Pho I'm dying to make some and need a good recipe πŸ€—

  6. Filipina here and I've been trying to perfect cooking chicken adobo and I think I found the recipe I have to try 😊..looks awesomely delicious πŸ˜‹ will add some chilli for that spicy kick πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

  7. In our family we call it C.P.A. Chicken Pork Adobo πŸ˜‹ each region family has its own preferences. I'd recommend that you try it with cooked rice wrap it in banana leaves. En voila! It's a classic picnic potluck 🀣

  8. I can't wait to make this! Another amazing video from you……. fall weather is on it's way (here in Portland Oregon) how about a casserole??
