Mild, tangy Chicken Adobo is one of the national dishes of the Philippines. The meat stews in a vinegar sauce cooked slowly over low heat. This shortened version has the flavors without the hours.

The chicken is cooked in the sauce, removed and sauteed a few minutes.

This meal contains 553 calories per serving with 29 percent of calories from fat.

Helpful hints

• Use a small saucepan so the sauce will cover the chicken.

• Saute the chicken on a low flame so it browns and does not burn.


• Start the chicken.

• While chicken cooks, make the rice.

• When ready, saute the chicken.

Wine suggestion: The chicken adobo is a little sweet, so an extra-fruity white viognier would be nice with it.
