"This is a Filipino recipe which was carried down to me. I just added the jalapeno for spice and used the chicken wings. You can use pork or whole cut up chicken, too. This is great as an appetizer or you can serve it as a meal with steamed Jasmine rice. Enjoy this! you will never go back to the same ol' hot wings."

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the wings, and boil for 5 to 8 minutes. Drain in a colander and run under warm water. Return to the dry pot, and add the vinegar, water, bay leaves, peppercorns, onion and jalapenos. Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.
  2. Season the chicken with soy sauce, and simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced by 1/2. Remove the wings to a colander, and set aside. Add a few garlic cloves to the liquid in the pan, and simmer until the sauce has a syrupy consistency, and the jalapenos have burst open releasing all of their seeds into the reduction.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken wings and the remaining garlic. Cook and stir until the garlic is tender and the wings have browned, about 10 minutes. Return wings to the sauce to coat before serving.

I grew up on chicken adobo and hoped that the jalapenos would add some zip. Didn't reall. Also, I always find chicken gets pretty dried out with the excessive cooking times required. Need to ...

Very tastey sauce.I use it to marinade the wings overnight, and grill or smoke them, bating with additional sauce.I also roast my garlic heads.

Second time making these. Love this recipe! My bf is Filipino and thinks these wings are da bomb!!

The chicken was very dry and I even doubled the liquid so it would cover most of the chicken in the pot. I gave it 2 stars due to the fact that it did smell very good.

AWESOME! I did mine in a crockpot and by the end the chicken was so moist it pretty much fell right off the bone! I shredded the meat and added it to a tortilla with some Louisiana Jalapeno Pe...

I really enjoyed the flavors and it made my kitchen smell delicious. I actually used the marinade on chicken breasts instead of wings and it was SO good! I am looking forward to making the wings...

I love the way Filipino Adobo meets Buffalo Wings!!! I got turkey wings and put them in the pressure cooker for 10mins then cooked them as directed. Superb!!!

Delicious. I liked it and will cook it again.
