    July 8, 2013 (Last Updated: June 29, 2016)

    Adobong Manok Sa Gata  is traditional Chicken Adobo with a touch of Bicol

    Adobong Manok Sa Gata, The best Filipino dishes are the ones that do not have a written recipe other than the knowledge passed on from generation to another. This is one is a great example and it is one of my all time favourite comfort food. It calls for free-range chicken which has a lot more flavour to it and it can also stand the long cooking time required for this recipe. Use the pepper of your choice. (We used siling labuyo, or bird’s eye chili originally, but I think jalapeno, serano or habanero are good candidates for substitute).
