Filipino Chicken Adobo

One of my favorite Filipino dishes is Chicken Adobo. A simple dish that goes with rice and tastes delicious. This easy recipes is a must when I go home and meet up with the family. Slow cooked with the chicken falling off the bone…oh man! My mouth is watering right now!
Delicious Rating: Hello food goodness! For me chicken adobo is almost like a comfort food that I could eat while snuggled in a blanket on the couch watching a movie. All the flavors meld so well to give it such a delicious flavor and the chicken is so tender, juicy, and falls right off the bone. The brown sugar cuts the vinegar and also thickens up the sauce while the bay leaves add that hint of herbs on the palate. Serve over rice for a different dinner recipe that your family is sure to enjoy!
