Now that we've got a Filipino place here in the Capital Region, you should learn a thing or two about some of these dishes you may come across. First up, the staple in any Filipino household - adobo. It's one of those dishes you can make a big batch of and eat it for the entire week (and of course, it gets better with time). Don't confuse this with Spanish versions of adobo... it shares the same name and the use of vinegar, but that's about it.
You can adobo just about anything. Chicken and pork are more commonly seen, and sometimes places will offer a combination of the two. But today we'll just focus on chicken. Ingredients are simple and you probably have them in your kitchen right now:
- Chicken (any cut will do, but since it's just me I stick to drumsticks)
- Bay Leaf
- Soy Sauce
Pretty sure this will be a weekly addition to my cooking schedule.
