Chicken Adobo - Lower Fat and Sodium

“This recipe uses bone-in skinless chicken breasts and less fat and soy sauce than usual. Lemon juice instead of vinegar gives it a different flavour, although use vinegar if that's what you like. You can substitute a whole chicken, cut up and with skin removed. Serve with steamed rice and vegetables.”
