Wow, tender meat falls right off the bone. Very flavorful. Didn't add the sugar and it was delightful just the same! Gathered some fresh chard from the garden, sauteed with garlic and served with the chicken instead of bok choy. Perfect! Entire family loved it.

This was quite sour. My first bite, I actually coughed as I swallowed the sour sauce, and my husband and 4 kids looked up at me expectantly....not wanting to taint their view, I said, "it's a bit hot (temperature-wise.)" My 2-year-old said, "sour" about 20 times while she was eating it. If I make this again, I'll do half chicken broth and half vinegar, just to cut down on the sour taste. My friend who lived in the Philippines for 2 years liked it and said that's the way chicken adobo is. I didn't serve it with rice (but with bread) so that probably made it seem more sour. Safeway was out of bok choy, so I used kale and red cabbage, which turned out well (probably healthier than bok choy, too.)

This was a fantastic recipe and I'll make it again! I changed it a tad by adding in 2 Tbsps brown sugar and a cup of water. The chicken just fell apart it was so tender. I also served rice with diced avocado. It was a hit!
