• 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.
