Chicken #Adobo - 3


I was brought to this Chicken Adobo recipe by way of means of the Lucky Peach cookbook, 101 Easy Asian Recipes. I’d by way of means of no means tried chook adobo before, nevertheless it appeared too simple to cross up. And you understand what? It’s so delicious I’ve further it to my traditional rotation.


What is Chicken Adobo?


Chicken Adobo is a Filipino dish that good points chook braised in a combination of soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and black peppercorns.


It initially appeared very same to a soy sauce braised chook that I grew up eating, variety of like this soy sauce braised recipe my mother posted within the early days of the blog.


What units it apart, however, is that liberal use of vinegar. It offers the dish a actually tangy high caliber that I love.


A Note On Coconut Milk


The Lucky Peach model of the recipe also consists of coconut milk (you can discover the unique recipe republished on Goop.com).


I’ve achieved some research, and whereas there are much of chook adobo recipes on the market that don’t contain coconut milk at all, I assume it actually rounds out all of the flavors––the saltiness of the soy sauce and the tang of the vinegar.


Developing Our Recipe


I did make some modifications to the recipe, however. I upload extra coconut milk than known as for, and much less soy sauce and vinegar. I initially discovered the dish somewhat of too salty and sour, but that might easily be resulting from the model of soy sauce I was utilizing (which is why I suggest utilizing low sodium soy sauce. Definitely keep away from utilizing “light soy sauce” for this dish, as it’s method too salty).


You can alter the quantity of soy sauce you upload on your liking. I suggest beginning with 1/2 cup, and including extra if wanted after the sauce has reduced.


But that’s the huge factor about this recipe. It’s very forgiving. You might make substitutions according on your personal style preferences, and also you guys can actually experience unfastened swap my model up though you like! If you can’t get entire dried red chilies, simply upload a pinch of beaten red pepper flakes.


If you don’t have entire peppercorns, update them with flooring black pepper. And utilizing traditional vintage distilled white vinegar––almost everybody has a bottle of their house––works perfectly.


One factor which you simply can’t do, however, is consume Chicken Adobo with out plenty of steamed rice. You’ll desire it to take up all that beautiful sauce.


If you’ll highly have anything else different than chicken, then examine out our Pork Adobo recipe!
