I Made My Own Creamy Chicken Adobo, and it’s Surprisingly Easy!

Remember when I mentioned in one of my earlier posts that I couldn鈥檛 wait to make my own Creamy Chicken Adobo? Well here it is! I finally decided to test my own cooking skills (I used to be a whole lot better at eating than cooking), and set out to prove that with the right ingredients, I can also do well in the kitchen *fingers crossed*



This is going to be some sort of experiment to me because I鈥檓 not used to having adobo with cream. Here鈥檚 to hoping that I鈥檇 at least get somewhere near the Creamy Chicken Adobo that was served in the Nestl茅 All Purpose Cream cooking demo I attended a few weeks ago.



I鈥檝e already shared the recipe taught to us by Chef Rob Pengson in my earlier blog post, but allow me to share with you my own experience of making chicken adobo, made creamier with Nestl茅 All Purpose Cream:





      1 whole chicken, cut into pieces, approximately 1 kg
      1/3 cup vinegar
      录 cup MAGGI庐 Soy sauce
      录 cup water
      1 sachet 8g MAGGI MAGIC SARAP庐
      录 cup crushed garlic
      2 bay leaves
      Black Pepper
      陆 cup oil
      1 pack NESTL脡庐 ALL PURPOSE CREAM 250mL


1.       In a pot, boil chicken in vinegar, soy sauce, and water. Add MAGGI MAGIC SARAP, garlic, bay leaves, and peppercorns. 



2.       Cook uncovered until boiling.  Lower the heat and simmer while covered until chicken is tender or simmer for 10 minutes.  Strain the sauce and reserve it on the side. We鈥檒l be using this later on.


3.       In a separate pan, heat the oil and start frying the chicken until it gets golden brown (the chicken starts smelling reeaaally good at this point).
4.       Remove the excess oil and start pouring the sauce we reserved earlier. Allow to simmer until most of the sauce evaporates.
5.       When almost dry, start pouring in NESTL脡 All Purpose Cream and mix with the rest of the ingredients. Serve hot.



Believe it or not, my cooking actually tasted great! Just when you thought your adobo couldn鈥檛 get any better, here鈥檚 another way of leveling-up your dish, transforming it into a new language of love. Make this for your loved one and I鈥檓 sure they鈥檇 feel extra special knowing that this is not the usual adobo they know (extra points if you鈥檙e like me who doesn鈥檛 really cook that often!).


This recipe of course, is just a guide, and you can further customize your cooking preparation according to your preferred taste. In the version I made for example, I topped the finished product with roasted garlic, and added some chili flakes to make it a bit spicy. I shared it with my friends at work and they gobbled up the whole thing in no time!


I鈥檇 be sharing this recipe to my mom back in Bukidnon. If my version tasted great, I鈥檓 sure that hers would be a whole lot better!
