    Engrossed's Note:

    This is another recipe from "The Philippine Cookbook". I made this recently for my husbands Filipino birthday dinner. I used cubed boneless skinless chicken breasts. I just cooked it in the pot until the sauce was reduced. I didn't bother with the broiler. I also used white vinegar as I don't care for apple cider vinegar. It was great! I might try it in the crockpot next time.

      I just made this and found the apple cider vinegar way too strong. As it was cooking I added more coconut milk and brown sugar to cut the acidity, but my husband who eats everything without complaint ate about half and could not finish it. Since there was still a lot left, I poured out as much liquid as possible and added more coconut milk and now we will see if that will work.

      Hey, this is a winner! I love the way the coconut milk cuts some of the typical adobo acidity without removing it completely - just a tasty, tasty dish. I used four boneless, skinless chicken breasts, and marinated all day while we were at work. I used 2/3 cup white vinegar, and 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar. I'm GF so I used a wheat free Vietnamese soy sauce, and it was delicious. I shredded the chicken into chunks with about fifteen minutes to go and continued to simmer with the lid off. Served with sticky rice and steamed broccoli. Next time I won't use as many whole peppercorns - it's tasty to bite into one every now and then, but it wasn't that great to have them in every bite.

      This is a dish this is a dish that IS to be sour! Thats the point of the meal, so if your American palete is too sensitive, dont try it or cut down the vinegar to a 1/2C.
      I love this recipe, My deceased Mother in law was Fillipino, and taught me how to make it, but over the years I lost (forgot) the recipe. Great recipe, thanks for sharing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
