Fillipino Bliss

I made the easiest and most delicious chicken yesterday. After thumbing through one of many cookbooks, I came across this receipe for Fillipino adobo chicken. Unbelievably I already had everything I needed at the house. Usually, I am off and running to the grocery store for one thing and coming home with 30. I only let it marinate for 5 hours, but really it should have been overnight.

6 cloves of garlic minced
4 bay leaves
2 teaspoons of black peppercorns
1 cup water
1/2 cup soy sauce
2/3 cup organic apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar

Combine all marinade ingredients in a bowl.  Marinate chicken me won't disappoint.

Place chicken and marinade in a dutch oven and simmer for about 40 minutes.  

Remove and either grill or fry for a few minutes to get a crispy coating.  

Reduce the marinade for another 5 minutes and then serve with chicken over rice.

  1. My grandmother was married to a Filipino man that used to make this all the time! We used to have this occasionally when I was growing up but I can remember it vividly. I have looked for the recipe through the years but never found it! I'll have to make this for Ross some time!! Glad you posted it!!!
