This week’s tummy travels take us all the way to the Philippines, it is also a place I would not mind visiting, for its beautiful beaches, people and diverse cuisine. But since I can’t go there for now, I can at least try to make a dish from there right?
Chicken Adobo is basically Chicken marinated and braised in garlic, vinegar, oil and soy sauce. It is amazing how the few ingredients turn the chicken into a delectable delight that will have you licking your fingers and smacking your lips. There are so many variations to this recipe, so I used one that I found was easier for me as I had all the ingredients on hand.Let’s get started.
Chicken adobo is usually served with steamed rice. Which works well with the intense flavour of the sauce and the meat. There are many variations of the dish on the world wide web, one can choose what to go with.
We had ours with matoke (green banana) fries and a salad. You can deep fry or bake the green bananas. I prefer baking as it is healthier. Deep frying them is not so bad for a treat too as they cook really fast and do not absorb as much oil as potatoes. Whichever method you choose, season them with some salt, garlic powder and paprika, they work really well with these fries. And of course, do not forget your salad.
This is a delicious meal you will find yourself making over and over again, I know I will! How good was it? There were NO leftovers!
It is definitely worth a try and I can say our tummy travels to The Phillipines were quite successful.
