One of the first dishes I learned to cook after I married is chicken adobo. I had several friends who showed them their technique. Gerry Alanguilan, the Komikero, Roni (a friend's ex hehe) and I watched a couple of videos. I've cooked it a lot of times I can make it now while asleep haha.
Here's the recipe:
1 kg. chicken
1 tsp black peppercorn
2-3 bay leaves 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 cup vinegar
2 cups water (add when you start cooking)
Mix everything except water. Marinate for 3 hours or overnight in the fridge.
Transfer to a pot and add 2 cups of water. Cook for 30 minutes.
Do not mix until it boils!
Lower heat and cook for another 10-15 minutes.
