Donal's Notes

Chicken adobo is a classic Filipino recipe and features chicken that is braised in a vinegar, soy sauce and garlic! The addition of muscovado sugar helps with that salty sweet taste. Most adobo recipes usually take more than 10 minutes to make, but after testing it numerous times, you can still get a great tasting adobo in just minutes.
