Chicken Adobo Recipe

Chicken Adobo is an authentic Filipino dish and is one of the mostly recognized Filipino foods. This Chicken Adobo Recipe is the simplest that you can get. Not to be mistaken with Mexican adobo, this dish is uniquely prepared by stewing chicken in vinegar and soy sauce.

Several sources who are experts in Asian food history say that the Filipinos were already cooking adobo even before Spanish colonization. The cooking method is termed as “inadobo” which is the very same method in this Chicken Adobo Recipe. It is also said that cooking with vinegar preserves the meat. This method is also considered as one of the earliest food preservation practice.

I love this Chicken Adobo recipe because it is so straightforward and the result is really awesome. You don’t need to have any cooking experience in order to prepare this dish. All you need to do is watch the video and follow the step-by-step procedure.
