"Filipino food is a fusion of different flavours which evolves through various influences like Spanish, American, Chinese and other Asian countries. As we adapted and concocted these dishes it has created diverse flavours that are uniquely Filipino seasoned and spiced by our rich culture".

Chicken Adobo

Adobo is a famous Filipino dish. Almost every region has their own version of cooking adobo, but basically meat is stewed in vinegar. This is an ideal "baon" for lunch for school, work or travellers since it keeps well without refrigeration.

Chicken Adobo with Quail eggs

1 kilo Chicken (cut in desired chunks) or you can choose parts you like
1/4 cup soy sauce (or more to desired taste)
1/4 cup vinegar
2 tbsp cooking oil
4 bay leaves
5 cloves garlic (minced)
1/2 tsp peppercorn
1/2 tsp sugar
ground pepper (to taste)
10 pcs boiled quail eggs (optional)

How to prepare:
> In a bowl, combine all ingredients (except water). Marinate for an hour, or if you have the luxury of time, marinate it overnight.
> Heat oil in pan, fry the chicken  until light brown (Do in batches if needed). Add the marinate, then bring to boil then lower heat. Simmer for about 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Simmer until sauce is reduced and thickened as desired.
> When serving, you may add boiled eggs. This is perfect with steamed rice. Enjoy!
