Chicken Rice Adobo

This week, we will be featuring the delicious Filipino Adobo.  

Adobo is the quintessential Filipino comfort food.  As I have already mentioned in one of my posts on adobo - "where there is Filipino in any part of the world, there surely is adobo".  

Adobo is a tangy-salty, or salty-tangy-sweet, or salty-sweet dish depending on the regional background of the Filipino cooking it.  Did you know that there are many ways on how to cook adobo? The Tagalogs have different ways of cooking it.  the Ilocanos have their own way too and so are the Visayans.  And so for this week, we will give you a few ways and variety of cooking this popular Pinoy dish.

Every Filipino has their own chicken adobo recipe I believe.  This post however, is not about the chicken adobo per se but what to do with any left-over chicken adobo or even pork adobo.  Turn it into a delicious rice dish.  Try my chicken rice adobo that my husband likes for breakfast.  It is simple and easy but tasty :-)

Ingredients :

Rice, cooked - 3 cups
Left Over Chicken Adobo
Adobo oil or any Vegetable Oil - 2 tbsp
Sauce from your adobo or a tsp of Soy Sauce 
Knor Seasoning to taste
Garlic, chopped - 7 cloves or as desired
Onion, diced - 1 large
Black pepper powder
Green onion leaves, chopped - 1 stalk

1. Use the rice that was cooked at least a day before (left-overs are great too).  It is not advisable to use freshly cooked rice as the result will not be as good as using the left-over rice.

2. Break any clumped rice. 

3.  It is advisable to use the oil from the adobo.

Cooking Procedure :

1. Flake or shred the remaining chicken meat.
2. Heat oil in a pan then add the garlic then onions.  Fry it until they turned brown.  Add the chicken meat.  Stir.
3. Toss in the rice and stir fry it.
4.  Season it with the sauce from the adobo if any or soy sauce and knorr seasoning.  Drizzle with black pepper powder.  Continue to stir fry for about 2 minutes then remove from fire.

Top with chopped green onions and serve :-)
