My mom makes the best pork adobo, but I think my chicken version rivals hers! Don't tell her :)

This was tasty. I've only ever had eggplant adobo which I also found on Zaar. It was very easy to make, although I used breasts and next time will use thighs because I do think they'll be better. I also liked how the potatoes didn't get mushy. The only thing is- it took MUCH longer to prepare/marinate/cook this dish than the 1 hour stated. I'd say with prep, marination and cooking it took almost 2 hrs 15 minutes.
