I love adobo and I am always interested in finding different versions.

How old is your son? Funnily enough, hubby and I ask the same question everyday, since we have a 3month old.

Looks delicious!
I have to try this out.
I'm glad I found your site, my husband is Filipino and misses food from his childhood, but I'm at a complete loss at where to start since I never made anything Filipino. :)
Book marking for sure!
Thanks :)

LOVE IT! Thank you so much! We gotta hook up next time I'm in LA. Chinese New Year?

This looks delicious! My husband and I are going to put it on the menu next week!

When I made your adobo chicken from an earlier post in this blog, I took the chicken out and did the reduction. I also skimmed off some of the fat as it was reducing(personal preference). But I really think the reduction and browning of the chicken is the key to concentrating the flavors and getting it really nice and golden brown. YUM!

P.S. Have you tried to make adobo chicken wings?

i remember my 1st month with my daughter (now a 20 month old energizer bunny), i was the only one sleep deprived unless i kicked, pushed, shoved and smacked my hubby out of bed. and i remember sleeping according to the baby's sleeping/napping time every 2 hours or so. but it was indeed very tiring.
the chicken adobo looks great, i have to try this out myself... though my version of adobo already is easy enough but hubby likes me frying the chicken afterwards for a crispy finish, so broiling it should give the same effect! thanx a lot... and i do have to get one of jadens cookbook

Okay, that's it - I need to buy that cookbook! I keep seeing recipe's from it on a lot of food blogs (I don't have kids so I have plenty of time to indulge in Food Blogs!). Thanks for the honest and funny intro.!

I am clearly late - congratulations on the little bundle of joy!

Like Cynthia, so am I! Congratulations to your little angel and a very big thanks for the original Filipino Adobo recipe!

thank heavens for quick recipes -- I do appreciate The Steamy Kitchen. I can respect and will periodically do meals that require a decent amount of prep and process, but nine out of ten times, I have to go with what's fast because food blogging is merely a hobby, not a full-time job. Will definitely have to try this one, as it looks fantastic!

You mean you look MORE haggard, Marvin? Kidding! Lord knows our Asian youthiness could use taking down a notch or two :) Go go superdad! :)

Love this menu for this day!


Made this last night and my boyfriend LOVED it. I'm slowly bringing him over to the pinoy side :)

Sounds great Marvin. I have to get Jaden's cookbook! Missed you in San Francisco, but it sounds like you have your hands full, in a good way!

Hope your Thanksgiving was awesome!

I wonder if there's a way to put this cookbook on my baby registry...

Great post! I really enjoy steamy kitchen, and I feel inspired to tap into my Filipino heritage (finally!) and make some adobo at home. I just hope my grandma like it =)

That looks fantastic. This is another must-try recipe for adobo. And congratulations that your blog is mentioned on the Resource Guide section. You truly deserve it.

Adobo was the second Filipino dish I learned to make. It's so easy, and so comforting too!

tol, do you have pata tim recipe?

This is a nice take on chicken adobo,the best thing about adobo is it's even better the following day :) Hope your family is doing okay...we miss your post :)

I'm a proud mum. I work full time and don't like being away from home on travels but by God, the one thing I'm thankful for....is SLEEP. Though less so, since blogging began!

Hey Marvin! Thanks so much for writing your blog. Your posts are very informative, helpful, and marvelously entertaining. I find myself laughing out loud a lot when reading your blog, I swear you're like the dude version of me. Similar sense of humor, and like you, I didn't start appreciating the culinary details of my upbringing until recently, and also married to a non-Filipino.

Unlike you, though, my mom didn't cook and can't teach me, hence how I found your blog looking for recipes. This is the first recipe I tried out and it worked out wonderfully. So yeah, just wanting to say, thank you, and keep up the good work! I look forward to your future posts! =)

The secret to adobo is the right heat, I have tried it a lot and I can say I am going into perfection! Thanks for this post!

Hi Cherrie, thanks for visiting. My son is now almost 5months old.

Thanks Maggie. Your husband is lucky that you're willing to learn to cook Filipino food.

Sounds good, Jaden.

I hoped you liked it, moxiemaxey.

I agree heather. Things are so much better after reducing and browning. And yes, I've tried various versions of adobo chicken wings.

Hi ahnjel. I don't always get up at night, it's tiring enough for me during the day too!

Thanks Gina. The cookbook is well worth it.

Better late than never, Cynthia;) Thanks!

Thanks very much tramadol.

I'm the same as you wasabi prime. The quicker the better!

Asian youthiness goes out the window once you have kids, Manggy;P

Thanks stephanie.

Your boyfriend is very lucky, linz.

My hands are definitely full, LL!

The cookbook would make for a nifty gift, darleene!

Hey Nastassia! I'm glad you're inspired to make some Filipino food.

Thanks Divina. And yes, it is a must-try recipe.

That means you at least know how to make 2 Filipino dishes, Bianca. That's better than none!

Sorry dax. I don't have a recipe for pata tim. Someday hopefully.

Adobo is definitely better the next day Alisa. That's why you should always make enough for leftovers!

Hi Kitchen Butterfly. It's a tough choice choosing btwn blogging and sleep:)

The dude version of you? I'll take that as a compliment;P Thanks Jaana.

I usually go low and slow on the heat. Thanks Soup Recipes!

I tried out this recipe. I love adobo, and any recipe i come across screams for testing. Because I am on a quest for the perfect Pinoy Adobo recipe. One that would curl my tongue in pleasure and clogmy arteries. And you know what? This recipe comes really, really close. Thank you for posting

You're right...Jaden's site is great, as is this one. I love the idea of broiling the chicken in the process.

I love adobo chicken

I asked my nanay for an adobo recipe I could use to make dinner for over 100 people so she sent me this link bec. the baking part would be more efficient, the adobo in the picture looked awesome so why not...I pretty much followed the recipe. I used 40lbs chicken and multiplied the rest of the ingredients by ~20 except I kinda eyeballed the bay leaves coz my nanay said I probably do not want to put too much of that. I also used both cracked and whole peppercorns, I was afraid people would find it hard to eat around them haha (sorry). I believe non of them were Filipino too. It turned out awesome, the baking part added so much color and texture to the chix, I think I would always bake them from now on.

holy crap i can't wait to try this.

my recipe's a little soupier, but i love the idea of thickening the sauce and broiling the chicken. i'm amazed at how simple it is... and why the heck i didn't think of cooking the chicken twice before?

love this blog.

the picture of your adobo dish looks so yummy and it really looks like it's easy to do. good job! i will definitely give this a try and make my dad taste. adobo is one of the best filipino food out there and my family loves it. :)

can you tell me how many servings this recipe yields? looks good!
