This is the Filipino Adobo, so if you're looking for the Mexican/Latino version - this recipe isn't for you. I love Adobo and my friend's Lola (grandmother in Tagalog) makes the BEST kind! So luckily I had that flavor memory to go off of. This recipe yields a very vinegary Adobo when following the recipe exactly and takes longer to make than stated. I added an extra 1/4c soy sauce, 2t sugar and 1 clove garlic to the recipe. I let the chicken simmer, turning occasionally, for an additional two hours to soak up the new flavor of the sauce. I just made this last night and after the adjustments it tastes pretty close to what Lola makes. But the original recipe as it stands doesn't measure up.
