Philippine adobo is a marinaded Filipino braised dish. An adobo marinaded typically vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, and peppercorns. This is the my take on chicken adobo.
It is embarrassing to admit, but before making it, I had never had chicken adobo. Or any other adobo dish.
I first heard about chicken adobo while watching a TV cooking show. On the show, food critics had to justify their critiques. They also had to cook the same dishes for the chefs that they had judged harshly.
While describing the dish, I became very intrigued. Adobos feature vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic. They are a salty, tangy, garlicky dish that sounded great. I began reading recipes for making adobo, and this recipe is the result.
This dish is keto, or low carb diet friendly, and is a great meal to make if you are cooking for people not on a keto diet.
If you are serving the dish over rice, you may want to strain out the peppercorns, as they still retain a fair bit of bite, and may be overpowering.
Vinegar, salt, pepper, and garlic! And in a one pot dish that is easy to cook, and requires very little prep time. What is not to love!
It works well on its own, or goes great over steamed rice.
