Philippines - Adobo Chicken
I'm getting excited, there's finally light at the end of the long International food filled tunnel. Less than 50 foods to go now. ^_^
It's The Philippines for today's offering. Adobo chicken. Adobo is a cooking method where you add raw ingredients to a stock comprising of vinegar and different spices.
Will the kids try it, will they not...it's enthralling. :D
1 cup water
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup vinegar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
3 cloves garlic
Chop the onion, chicken and garlic. Put everything in a pan.
Bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer and simmer for about an hour.
And that's it, likely the easiest recipe ever. It made quite a thick sauce once it had reduced down and looked really appetising. Leigh and Erin both tried it but found it too peppery. I really liked the spicy taste of it but it was borderline too salty. I'd halve the salt added if I made it again. It went well with rice bcause the sauce needs something to soak it up. I mopped up the sauce with bread and felt the sauce was the best part of this dish. Lovely!
