Adobong Manok na may Gata

The best Filipino dishes are the ones that do not have a written recipe other than the knowledge passed on from generation to another. This is one is a great example and it is one of my all time favourite comfort food.

You will need:

6 pcs chicken legs
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 head garlic crushed (the more the merrier)
1/2 cup vinegar (I used delmonte cane vinegar)
1 tsp peppercorns
1 tsp salt
6 pcs fresh chillies (optional)
1/2 cup water
3 pcs bay leaves
1/2 cup coconut milk
cooking oil

Then you have to;

  • Marinate chicken in soy sauce, vinegar and garlic. I marinate my chicken overnight.  
  • In a sauce pan, heat oil, thrown in the garlic and seared the chicken pieces and pour-in the marinate mixture.
  • Simmer until the chicken is cook.
  • Add the chillies.
  • Add the coconut milk. Simmer until a saucy consistency is achieved. Season with soy sauce or salt if needed or according to desired taste. Serve hot!
