I was just trying to cook fried chicken the other day when I decided to boil the chicken I marinated and turn it into Brown Adobo.
Hermie and I liked it so much because it was not too "asim" (sour).
In fact, I am going to cook it again. I have many adobo recipes in my blog shared by friends but this is my favorite at the moment.
700 g. chicken, legs or thighs
2 T. vinegar
1 T. Coconut brand soy sauce
1/2 t. rock salt
1/2 t. coarsely ground black pepper
1/2 t. MSG (optional)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 C. water
1/4 C. cooking oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1-2 t. Knorr seasoning
Marinate the chicken in vinegar, soy sauce, salt, pepper, garlic and MSG overnight. Do NOT skip this part.
Boil the chicken with marinade in 1/2 C water for 30 minutes.
Drain the chicken pieces and set aside the sauce.
Fry the chicken then put on a serving plate.
Brown the garlic in the oil where the chicken was fried.
Add the sauce and reduce until slightly thick.
Add Knorr seasoning then pour over the fried chicken.
