“This is a very tasty and easy-to-make Filipino chicken dish made with soy sauce, garlic, and vinegar. I can just as easily double or triple the chicken in this recipe to serve guests at a party. Serve over rice with just a little of the sauce (not too much).” - by HEART-OF-MIDLOTHIAN
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate.
- In a large pot, mix soy sauce, water, vinegar, honey, garlic, bay leaves, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, and place the chicken into the pot. Reduce heat, cover, and cook 35 to 40 minutes.
- Remove chicken, drain on paper towels, and set aside. Discard bay leaves. Return the mixture to a boil, and cook until reduced to about 1 1/2 cups.
- Place chicken on the prepared grill, about 5 minutes on each side, until browned and crisp. Serve with the remaining soy sauce mixture.

"I've made Adobo many times - for those who found that it was too salty, this has to do with the brand of soy sauce you use. If you buy Kikoman for example use 1/2 cup less than the recipe calls for o..." See morer add more water. If you buy a Filipino brand like Silver Swan then follow the recipe as is and it won't be salty at all."
"This is a flavorful dish with a garlicy-tangy sauce. I substituted brown sugar for the honey and it came out fine. Some suggestions: Trim the fat from the chicken, otherwise the sauce gets a little oi..." See morely. When returning the mixture to a boil, do not cover the saucepan - allow the sauce to evaporate until it is reduced to about half its original volume. The sauce will have a glaze-like consistency. I don't have a grill, so I quick-pan-fried the chicken in a little oil and minced garlic - just enough to make the outside crisp. Tasty!"
