Chicken adobo a must-have at food-filled family get-togethers
Every family has their own recipe and adds their own twist
CBC Toronto reporters share their favourite Christmas treats in our Holiday Eats series.
The holidays are just another reason for Filipinos to do what they love most — get together and eat! Everyone brings a dish (or four!) to add to the holiday meal.
One of my favourite dishes is chicken adobo. It's a delicious braised chicken dish, cooked in a mixture of soy sauce, vinegar and peppercorns.
Every family has their own recipe and adds their own twist. I love adding chicken liver and bay leaves — so savoury with a hint of sour and the liver adds a creaminess to each bite.
Best of all, it reminds me of the wonderful family get-togethers I've been blessed with every holiday season.
