Because I am such a lazy mama and I cannot really stay long in the kitchen without Mirang following me, I have learned to make my adobo the quickest way possible.
Place chickens and the seasonings in a pan, bake in the oven at 200C for 30 to 45 minutes and that’s it. Once a while, I looked it up and turn it once or twice. Easy peasy.
Seasonings vary according to tastes but mine is usually:
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup sugar or honey
Dashes of cayenne paper
Our chicken adobo is served with wholewheat rice. I used to buy langkorn rice at kaufland for like 50cent but Mann insisted that we do not get much nutrients out of it so we changed to the wholewheat variety. The taste is bleehh but we just need to get used to it I guess. I asked mom about what kind of rice they are buying and that maybe she can consider switching to healthier type and she said:
Oy Karlota, my rice is very pretty. It is white. And expensive.
Yes, white is considered beautiful in Philippines and it seems that this includes the rice too.
P.S. Can also use pork instead of chicken for this recipe.
