Filipino-Style Chicken Adobo with Hard Boiled Egg served with Garlic Fried Rice and Quick Pickled Cucumbers
(dairy free, gluten free)
Filipino chicken adobo is one of the most popular dishes in the Philippines and made even better when served with hard boiled eggs. The Spanish word “adobo” means “marinade” or “pickling sauce.” Like many warm climate cultures, indigenous Filipino cuisine uses vinegar as cooking methods to preserve food. The Filipino style adobo is prepared with vinegar, soy sauce (introduced by Chinese traders), garlic, ginger, and whole peppercorns. The marinade helps transform the texture of the chicken, leaving it soft, tender, and juicy. The taste is complex but well balanced, with salty, sweet, sour, and spicy notes.
