My mom always used to make this when I was a kid. It sounds impressive (aka hard) but couldn’t be easier to make. I love the idea of passing the tradition along to my own brood.


Combine 1/2 cup rice wine vinegar, 1/2 cup soy sauce, and 2 or 3 garlic cloves in a pot. Add a cut up chicken (legs and thighs work well too) and bring to a boil. Put a lid on the pot and reduce to heat to a simmer.

Let cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Serve with rice and sauteed broccoli. The chicken should be falling off the bones.

    I love chicken adobo and I’m just thrilled to see a recipe on momfilter! We call this version adobo puti (white adobo) in the Philippines. Thanks for this post. :-)

    Looks tasty! Do you cook the chicken with the skin on or off?

    I prefer chicken with the skin on. The skin will fall off as the chicken cooks (so it is not eaten) but it adds richness and flavor to the dish.
