Chicken Adobo

My brother-in-law's mom(she's Filipino), used to make these for the Christmas Holidays and Birthdays but she's far away in Corpus Christi so I forgot the recipe that I have to search for something similar. I've also seen this used with Chicken Breasted and Grilled Chicken Patties served on bread and let me tell you that this is the most flavorful dishes and tastes better with Pancit(fried noodles), and of course Lumpia(egg rolls basically but uses Vietnamese rice paper to wrap the contents in and deep fried).

So here's how to make some(plus I love Asian Food as well lol):

4-6 whole chicken legs (drumsticks and thighs)
[Kyo's Note] You can also add chicken breasts if you want.
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
3 bay leaves


Separate the thighs from the drumsticks and place into a large sauce pan with all other ingredients. Let sit to marinate for 1 hour.

After marinated, bring to a boil then reduce to medium heat. Cover and continue to cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover and let simmer to reduce another 20 minutes or until the chicken is tender.

Simple eh, ;)!
