Chicken Adobo

A classic Filipino dish, Chicken Adobo is the national dish of the Philippines, and it’s traditionally made with a whole chicken or bone-in chicken legs and thighs.  The chicken is simmered in the Adobo mixture of soy sauce, vinegar, water, garlic, bay leaves, and pepper.  The chicken is pan-fried in its Tagalog variation.  This is the pan-fried  version, which I prefer.   This originates from the Tagalog provinces of the northern island of Luzon.
