Adobong Manok sa Gata, Chicken Adobo in Coconut Milk. For most Pinoy who have the basic experience in the kitchen would not need any recipe for cooking the adobo. Every individual have his or her own way of preparing the dish. Moreover, most of the time it also depends on what are the available ingredients in the kitchen at that moment.

Chicken Adobo in Coconut Milk

There are no exact measurements of ingredients as well. Quantities are most of the time adjusted as the dish is being cook along the way or perhaps if it was not done correctly the first time, it could be adjusted or rectified the next time. Adobo is so common is most Pinoy’s home that the dish has evolved to different versions and addition of other ingredients. These may be versions with lots of soy sauce or chunks of pineapple or perhaps cooked with lemongrass or for my recipe today adobo with coconut milk.

Its straightforward nothing special, it is your basic adobo with the addition on coconut milk and extra chilies. Here is how I cooked it.

  1. This is what I call comfort food and it is an absolute favourite. My mom makes this for me when I come for a visit during school breaks and makes it as a parting dinner when it is time to go back to the school dorm. In Manila, I have never seen this in any other family tables other than my own. My family hails from both Quezon and Bicol and over there chilies and coconut milk rule. Here's our family recipe
