My second wife was Pampangan. She was from the town of Bacalor, Pampanga, Philippines. Her recipe was in her head like her mothers and grandmothers. Sweet onion wasn't used. She used chicken thighs and legs. I gave this recipe 2 stars because it finally got me the recipe I have been trying to get since we divorced. The only thing I didn't know to use was the vinegar. This recipe isn't meant to be sweet and when it was first made sweet onions didn't exist in the PI. It's supposed to be tangy and is also good as cold left overs. I took her chicken adobo with me on week end fishing trips with white rice. Use only the full flavor Kikkoman soy sauce. Amount of garlic is up to the cook. The soy sauce and vinegar should cover the chicken. This recipe left out black pepper which should be fresh ground and not in a can. Amount of pepper is to taste. the only liquid that was on the table we what stayed on the chicken when it was removed from the wok with a slotted spoon.
