We have shown you a few samples of our Chicken Adobo(Adobong Manok) recipes from Mark and Janis. Again the cooking procedure is similar, although they have their own twist in their procedure and ingredients, but overall they are similarly delicious. Mark added some potato cubes on his Chicken Adobo, while Janis on the other hand, made it with boiled eggs. All taste pretty good! You just have to decide which Adobong Manok or Chicken Adobo recipe you prefer to serve on your dinner table.

What’s unique with Millie’s Chicken Adobo or Adobong Manok is that, she does not use vinegar for her marinade… she uses lemon instead. Obviously, using lemon as alternative to the traditional vinegar ingredient provides a unique flavor to the standard Adobo recipe. Try her Lemon Chicken Adobo, you’ll love it!

Ingredients: 4-6 servings

1 whole chicken, cut in pieces
1/4 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup of lemon juice
2-3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
1 medium sliced onions
3 dried bay leaves
1/2 cup of water
salt & peppers to taste

Cooking Procedure:

  1. Marinate already cut whole chicken in soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, onions, bay leaves and crushed black peppers for 30-45 minutes. Apply salt, if desired.
  2. Heat up oven at medium-high temperature. Transfer Chicken Adobo mix on a pot, add water, stir to properly incorporate mixture, then close the pot with its lid and bring adobo in to a boil.
  3. Remove the lid while it’s simmering, stir it a few times, then leave it to simmer for 35-45 minutes or until Adobong Manok sa Suha (Lemon Chicken Adobo) sauce thickens and meat is fork tender.
  4. When done, remove from the heat, serve it hot with steamed rice. Absolutely yummy.

Tip: Apply half a teaspoon of peppercorns for a more tangy taste. Add some boiled eggs for additional flavor.
