How to make it

  • Combine marinade ingredients in a large pot. Add chicken and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer about 1/2 an hour.
  • Take chicken out and either put it under a broiler or put it on a very hot grill and cook about 10-12 minutes to brown up nicely.
  • Meanwhile, bring marinade back to a boil and boil until reduced by about 1/2.
  • When chicken is done, put on a large serving platter and pour Adobo sauce over it and serve.
  • Store leftovers in sauce, will keep a week. Supposedly it'll keep without refrigeration, but I've never tried it. (I never ate it as leftovers at my MIL's house either.)
  • I'm not sure of cooking times if using pork or beef. I just know she made it with that too. The pork I know she slow cooked on low heat (200F I'm guessing) in oven for hours.

    tc - that's a good point. It's always good to think of foods that won't spoil easily when taking them to potlucks, picnics, or trips. Great idea for leftovers too. :)

    The adobo will really keep for a few days w/o refrigeration because of the vinegar in the sauce. But then again, why would we NOT refrigerate leftovers?! The adobo is a good picnic food or something to bring during long trips as they really keep well.
    In case you still have leftovers, you can shred into very thin pieces/strands and deep fry till crisp. Really good as toppings over steamed rice.

    This sounds wonderful. I love Filipino food. Especially Lumpia. My girls and I would go to this one restaurant especially for the Lumpia. Pansit is great too. What is Adobo Marinade and where would I find it? I'm going to bookmark this one. This is a great post.

    I must give this recipe a try. I've had this while living in Japan, my next door neighbor fixed Filipino Chicken Adobo, it was so good. I watched her make it but never had her recipe, this looks so much like it. Thanks for the great post, here's my 5

    Great recipe. Thanks! I wouldn't eat the leftovers if they weren't refrigerated either.
