My mom always makes her saucy Chicken Adobo recipe when I come home to visit. I think it's even better the next day as leftovers —she says it's because of the vinegar. — Michael Moya, Taste of Home Senior Marketing Manager

"This is one of my favorite chicken recipes. I was given the recipe by my neighbor, who got it from her Filipino grandmother. We serve it with sticky rice, and yes, it is even better the next day!"

"I made this recipe exactly as written. My mom's best friend was Filipino when I was growing up and my mom used to make her chicken Adobo recipe. I always loved it when she made it and I have been looking for the recipe for years. Well, this is it! This is definitely going into my 3-ring binder of "keeper recipes" and will be cooked often. It is so flavorful and the chicken is so tender. My husband loved it! Many thanks to Michael Moya for sharing his mom's recipe."
