My adobo with new hints from master adobo artist and my friend Lilly   Apr 07

These are the ingredients necessary for a great adobo – you need to play with the proportions – if you hit the magic formula – please get back to me!  Lilly does not use garlic and I don’t know about black pepper either.  I usually add whole peppercorns or cracked pepper to adobo.

In the past I have added beer to adobo recipes and as usual reduce everything down to the rich goodness of chicken fat in the bottom of the pot.

The ingredients are placed all at once into a large pot and once it gets going, cook covered evenly on medium low heat.  The flavor will be better if the skin on the chicken is left on to produce some fat for the gravy at the bottom.  There will not be a lot of liquid left over but I like the meat moist and tender and not dry.  Never burn the adobo!
