Though i add a spice that wasn't really there in a traditional adobo recipe that i know. Anyway, now is the chance to share you guys. I always cook this famous Filipino cuisine my family loves it so much cooking this makes them clean their plates specially my kiddos, my eldest favorite ever since but the lil missy is so picky lately am having a hard time to feed her but when adobo is right in her plate oh boy! Sure they enjoy every bite of it! Happy me, lol.


8-10 cut size chicken with bones (i used thigh and legs)
2-3 cloves chopped garlic
1 medium size onion chopped
3 bay leaf
1/4 cup soy sauce (silver swan)
1/4 cup vinegar (datu puti)
1/2 tsp pepper corn
1tbsp brown sugar (this will really incorporate the flavor altogether)
1/2 tsp paprika (spice i add)
1 banana or plantain (cut to your own desire)
1tbsp patis or fish sauce
1cup fat free chicken broth or a cup of water
half size of green bell pepper
1tsp cornstarch (for sauce thickening)


In a deep pot, Sauteed garlic and onion till fragrance arose.
Add the cut chicken and stir simmer for 5minutes.
Pour broth, soy sauce, vinegar, bay leaf, pepper corn, patis, paprika and brown sugar. Simmer and allow to boil for 20 minutes in a medium heat. If sauce is less you can just add half cup water.
Add the plantain and green bell pepper and cook another 10 minutes or until
the banana cooked. Add cornstarch for thicken sauce. Remove bay leaf and serve hot with rice.
