My Dad brought home a "chicken adobo" recipe from the Philippines when
he was stationed there back in the late 1950s...

It is chicken boiled in vinegar, soy sauce, lots of garlic and onion.
Served over white rice.
VERY GOOD, I always thought!
Unfortunately, it was the meal I made for him the night he died, so I haven't
made it since. Of course, the wife doesn't like it either so.....

Which is a long winded way of thanking you for the recipe! I am looking forward to
trying it out. :)
