Chicken Adobo with Tomato Sauce

Chicken adobo is one of philippines' cuisine. Normally chicken adobo are cooked without tomato paste . But here I added tomato sauce for further enhancement.


1.5 Kg chicken cut into 8 pieces
1/3 cup tomato sauce
1 head garlic peeled and minced
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
1/2 tsp whole peppercorn
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
3 Tbsp vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce ( I used 8 Tbsp here)
2 bay leaves
2 tbsp of vegetable oil
dash of salt to taste
2 medium potatoes, peeled and each cut into 4
2 Green bell pepper (sliced into 4 halves)
1 cup water


The first step is to marinate the chicken with the vinegar, soy sauce and ground pepper . Marinate, mix with your hands and leave in the fridge for about an hour.

In a large heavy pan , heat the oil and fry garlic until it is slightly browned. Add in onions and cook until golden . Add in tomato sauce and sauté until it boils. Continue cooking on low heat until the sauce becomes oily and has caramelized a bit. Add the marinated chicken pieces and lightly stir. Pour the leftover marinade and simmer on medium heat until partially cooked through and some liquid has evaporated.

Add in bay leaves, whole peppercorn and some salt to taste. Pour in some water and simmer until the chicken is soft. Add in potatoes and continue simmering until everything is fully cooked through; when the potato is already soft add the bell pepper and leave for another 5 minutes.
