Filipino Chicken Adobo

Filipino Chicken Adobo can be marinated overnight in our home kitchen recipe or if pressed for time use Datu Puti Adobo Series!

National dish of the Philippines! The key to this dish is to use chicken thighs (don't trade for breasts!!) and use whole peppercorn (trust us!) This recipe requires you to marinate the chicken for minimum overnight (can marinate up to 48 hours).
