Another exciting dish from Facebook game CAFE WORLD menu by Zynga - Chicken Adobo!! Chicken Adobo is a national dish from the Philippines! It is very flavorful with a strong taste of ginger, garlic, big round peppercorn and vinegar. Many people take this dish for picnics in the summer time. The vinegar actually preserves the chicken and tastes great with hot steamed rice.

Here's where I learned about the basic recipe of this dish:
Again, I modified the recipe with extra spices and sauces. It turned out absolutely delicious and smelled so wonderful in the kitchen!

Ingredients: (makes about 2 servings) 
- 2-3 pieces of chicken breasts (skinless, boneless)
- 1 big chunk of ginger root (grated)
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 medium red onion
- 1 cup of soy sauce
- 1 cup of chicken broth
- 1 cup of rice vinegar
- 2 cups of cold water
- 2 tablespoons of paprika
- 4 tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of flour
-2 tablespoons of peppercorn
- Asian rice (2-3 cups)

Step 1:  Start cooking rice in rice cooker.
Step 2: Mince up garlic and ginger. Cut red onion into thin strips.
Step 3: In a big cooking pan, heat up some olive oil, saute garlic, ginger and onion.
Step 4: Add chicken breasts into the pan. Turn heat down to medium. Add soy sauce, paprika and peppercorn. Cook for about 5 minutes.
Step 5: Add rice vinegar and chicken broth into the pan. Mix well and let it simmer for another 5-10 minutes.
Step 6: Separate the half-cooked chicken and sauce into 2 bowls. In another clean large cooking pan, add some olive oil and put the same chicken back onto the stove. Brown and cook the meat thoroughly.
Step 7: Add the sauce back to the chicken. Mix water and flour together in a small bowl. Slowly pour  liquid into the pan to thicken the sauce. Let it simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes.
Step 8: Serve immediately with rice on the side. Enjoy!!!
