Why I Love This Recipe

It is easy to cook this dish, that is why this is my go-to dish whenever I’m busy and in a hurry for a quick but filling meal.

We usually eat it with steamed white rice, boiled egg, and grated cheese, we pour the delicious sauce on the rice and eat it while it’s hot.

It is also a good dish to store and keep for up to a week, you just need to pop it in the microwave oven for a minute and heat it up and it will be good to eat again.

I also cooked this when we had the SAAS event of a lunch/meal together last month.

My mom taught me to cook this when I was 8 years old, and it has been since my comfort food.

It can also be done with pork, but I love chicken so this is my recipe for the chicken version of the Adobo
