    mersaydees's Note:

    This recipe is based on one from Atkins, The Complete Cookbook. The intro to the recipe reads, "The tangy vinegar marinade called adobo reflect the Spanish influence on the cuisine of the Philippines. Islanders enjoy adobo-seasoned pork, too." Allow an hour for the chicken to marinate in the refrigerator.

      Woohoo! Never fear, I screwed this up all over the place & it still came out fabulous! I used boneless thighs. Marinated, cooked in cast iron. When the chicken was cooked, I removed it from the pan & added the marinade. When it was syrupy, I put the chicken back in the pan. I FORGOT TO ADD THE 1c WATER!!!! But it was ok!!! We all loved it & there were no leftovers. Rah Rah! Made for ZWT5 5/09.

      I didnt like this much, but Hubby did. I found it a little too salty for me, though I thought that the chicken itself, cold, without the sauce was very nice. I think the skin absorbed too much of the soy. BUT, the recipe was easy to follow, and turned out well. thanks mersaydees
