This is a traditional Filipino dish that I grew up with. I slightly modified my dad’s recipe and put on my own spin.
If you haven’t tried Filipino food before, this is a simple recipe that will give you an idea of the sweet and sour flavors used in the Philippines.

Thanks for your feedback I’m glad that you enjoyed the chicken adobo. You were correct in reducing the sauce. I will update the recipe now.
Sarah we love it chicken wings,so I will make it.Thank you for your recipe.
I love chicken adobo. So delicious!
I cooked this yesterday and doubled the quantity. I really like how you tweaked my recipe.The addition of star anise gave an intense flavor. By the way, I browned the chicken first and then sauteed the onion and garlic.
fabulous and tasty like all of your recipes!
