Adobo Recipes

Chicken Adobo sa Calamansi


1 kilo chicken thighs and legs
1 bulb garlic minced
6 tablespoons squeezed calamansi
6 tablespoons Kikkoman soy sauce
1 sachet Ginisa Flavor mix or 1 tsp salt
black pepper ground
2 cups water
3 bay leaves
Toasted garlic (optional)


  1. In a wok, fry garlic in oil then put the chicken in to fry for a bit. (Don’t burn the garlic.)
  2. Pour in the calamansi and soy sauce, add the bay leaves, flavor mix or salt, and black pepper. Once it’s boiling, put the 2 cups of water. Don’t stir! Bring the heat down to medium, cover, then allow to boil for 30-45 minutes or until the chicken is done.
  3. Yes, I put in a lot of water because I like my adobo to have lots of sauce. Other adobo variations do not have sauce at all.
  4. On the serving plate, sprinkle some toasted garlic on top of the chicken. It’s tough making the perfect toasted garlic, so I just buy a bag of it from siomai sellers at the local market.
