What’s for dinner tonight? How about a hearty bowl of Chicken Adobo. A popular stewed dish in the Philippines, this common meal is best served over hot steaming rice. It’s also great for meals that require very easy and simple ingredients. This dish is also really great for left overs and One-pot meals!
