“My father was stationed in the Phillipines for a few years when I was young. My mom hated the heat. In fact, this recipe was one of the few things she actually loved about the place! Our 'house-girl' taught us the joy of chicken adobo, and we taught her the joy of pancakes. VEGETARIAN'S NOTE: I now substitute tofu for the chicken, cutting the tofu into chunks and letting it soak in the liquid ingredients (other than water) and with the garlic and onion for some time before I start cooking so it absorbs the flavor a little more like chicken. Still an absolute favorite for my family!”
