Like so many people around the world, I absolutely love chicken and never tire of it. So am always looking for new recipes that use this ubiquitous ingredient. Came across Chicken Adobo – considered one of the Phillipines’ national dishes – and thought I would give it a try. Glad I did as it is easy to make and we really enjoyed the tasty tang imparted by the ingredients used for the sauce.
