“It was my cousin Andrea's favorite chicken - so that's what we called it. Later on in years, I learned it's a simple Filipino chicken adobo. If I could, I would eat sauce-covered rice 3 times a day.”

Directions

  1. Combine ingredients, and heat until bubbles appear. Some would call that the boiling point. Add your chicken - chicken thighs or legs are preferable, but are not mandatory, of course. (The bones tend to add a certain je-ne-sais-quoi.) Turn down the heat! You now want to simmer for 30 mins on medium heat, turning approximately 5 times to coat. Figure about 1 turn every 6 mins., so choose something productive to do in between.
  2. If you feel the chicken is adequately cooked, broil 5 minutes on each side. To add crispness, I believe. To reduce sauce, cook 20-30 minutes.
  3. Pour over sticky white rice, if you have it. If not, brown rice is a healthy alternative.
