Grandmas' Chicken Adobo

Donna McCartney


I remember the aroma of this recipe when I was a little girl. It would draw me to the kitchen to see my grandma cook. I just couldn't wait to eat. I recently got my grandmas' recipe. I was so excited that I made this dish right away, and the aroma brought me back to my childhood. I hope you enjoy this flavorful dish.
