Chicken Adobo – By Vahchef @

hello namaste salaamwalekum satsriyakaal; welcome back to another session with your VahChef at Today we’re going to
make Chicken Adobo, this is one of the Phillippine preparation which I’m
going to slightly Indianize it but it is very easy to cook and very tasty so dear friends let’s go ahead and make this for this take chicken and cut the chicken into you know big pieces with the skin on if you want to make it without
skin also you can do it in this add pepper and vinegar this is a mild vinegar you know traditionally they use coconut vinegar or malt vinegar whatever but since i have rice vinegar i’m adding rice vinegar in this just add some bay leaf and some soya sauce and lots of garlic you know probably I sometimes I think I love this chicken because I add lot of garlic in this so add lot of chopped or sliced garlic in this and fill this chicken with some water and we’re going
to cover this and let it rest in the refrigerator for over night and then we cook the
next day soy sauce come on birds i know i’m
cooking a bird you know after marinating the chicken over night in the refrigerator
just take the entire thing including the liquid and then put this in a pan and we’re going to cook this chicken is nice and tender if needed i’m going to add some more water also in
this, this should be good enough and we’re going to bring this to a boil and
we’re going to cook it on a slow flame for around 25 to 30 minutes till the chicken is nice and tender, now the chicken is all boiled switch off the
flame and just transfer it into you know use a strainer like this so that we can
strain the juice separately and the chicken and garlic separately, heat oil in
this add some more garlic you know this is optional Wow when the garlic is getting cooked now
just put the pieces of chicken in this just let this chopped garlic and the chicken get nicely roasted in this oil this chicken is nicely cooked already in
the liquids what we marinated in just I want to cook it in the oil till this becomes
slightly crispy that’s when we’re going to add the sauce into this look at this you know you want every piece to be
slightly colored like this now you can see that this chicken is nicely browned in the oil now we’re going to pour the sauce in which we cooked the chicken let
this chicken stew in the sauce again and then once this is simmered and the sauce
becomes slightly thick that’s when we’re going to serve it you know look at this chicken this sauce has
reduced to almost one-tenth of the things what we started and now the sauce is nice and sticky and very sweet very nice sauce i used to have this chicken
adobo a lot when I was in US with my Filipino friends, dear friends this is one
of the easiest to make even though you may have to you know be patient marinating
it overnight and even when you’re cooking you cook it on a slow flame till
the chicken is nice and tender now the chicken is perfectly done even if i put
little bit sauce on this piece of chicken you see how thick the sauce is
nicely coating this is how i like it so dear friends I’m going to switch off the
flame and wow wow wow you know it’s been some time that I’ve eaten this so I’m
even more excited than eating other dishes hmm wow it is very important that you
marinate it overnight and that’s when your chicken will be nice and juicy you
have seen that we haven’t added too many spices are other ingredients but yet
just with a plain rice or even a fried rice like this this chicken will go excellent you’ll wondering how with simple soy sauce and vinegar a chicken can
become so tasty I’m sure you’ve seen the process first
thing is let the chicken boil in the marinade then strain out the marinade
and put the chicken in the hot oil along with the garlic till it is nicely golden and
crispy that’s when put back the stock again and simmer it till the stock is nice and thick that’s when you’ll get a good chicken adobo and dear friends make this and you will thank me for teaching you
simple dish like this wow dear friends I hope you enjoyed
today’s session and I’m sure that you will explore the cuisine around the
world and enjoy the best of the best food around the world but do not forget

  40. Andrew Bato says:

    thank you for sharing maraming salamat

  41. Ahmi A. says:

    Btw, we filipinos do not use rice vinegar. We usually use sugar cane vinegar.

  42. Ahmi A. says:

    We dont add water to the marinade. It dilutes the flavour of the marinade too much. We use lemon juice. Use lemon juice instead of water and putting vinegar while the chicken is boiling without stirring until after 15 mins will make the adobo dish even tastier. Its a science. A tasty art of science chemistry.

  43. Pusang InangGala says:

    thanks for appreciating Filipino food

  44. RaqiS Malga says:

    cool chef! you've cracked this dish better than I do. Im a filipino, yet I cook. chicken indian dishes better than my own Philippines dishes. My dishes came from following your video recipes! and my husbands colleagues in office are surprise with every dish i cook for my husband cuz their pretty much indian! 😊 thanks for all these lovely recipes! God bless chef!

  45. Murali Krishna says:

    do video on ginisang ampalaya ( filipino bitterguard ) . its also a simple, but very tasty dish without the bitterness of Bitterguard

  47. ZKT XO says:

    I love how he said he indianized it… while actually, he cooked this dish the way my filipino mom cooks it….
