I love adobo and this Hawaiian twist is a great version. My DH's family is from Maui but they're filipino, so it seemed right to blend these flavors. I actually used chicken tenders (easier, no bones). I put a bit more vinegar, about 1/2 C soy sauce, and I added whole peppercorns (we ALWAYS do that with our adobo) as well as cracked peppercorns. I didn't use any water (didn't see where to). My whole family loved this dish, so thanks for posting the recipe!
