|Grandma's Kitchen: Chicken Adobo Cebu-Style!
by Christine Patron
I always have a feeling of being home everytime my mother would cook a certain dish from the Philippines. Nothing reminds me of home more than the aroma of garlic and vinegar wafting from the kitchen from a bubbling pot of adobo. It is a dish that is distinctly Filipino. Ask any Filipino about adobo and you'll get a smile every time. It's the one dish you will always find in family gatherings.
Adobo basically means stewing or boiling meat in vinegar. It is the vinegar which gives it a distinct, tangy flavor. The recipe below calls for chicken meat and is refried after cooking (Cebu style). Other variations use beef or pork or a combination of chicken and pork and is served with plenty of sauce, without refrying.
This dish is quick to prepare and does not need a lot of ingredients. Serve it over rice, another Filipino staple. It is a dish sure to remind you of balmy days with coconut trees swaying in the breeze. Give it a try!
