Chicken Pork Adobo

Yup, that's adobo in the pic. And yes, those are potatoes and carrots.

There must be a hundred or more ways to cook adobo and this is just my way. (or at least one of them) ;)

Ever remember having been told to eat vegies when you were a kid and not just meat? Well, i was one of those kids who shunned vegies and was practically carnivorous. I love adobo, both chicken and pork. However, now i've accepted the importance of vegetables, so as a sort of compromise i added a couple of vegies to my adobo. :)

Golden Garlic Fish Fillet

Yesterday i was able to buy a couple of kilos of surgeonfish fillet. I usually just make a batter made of flour and eggs, dip the fish, fry and serve. This time i decided to mix in garlic and margarine resulting in a very tasty dish.

Spicy Buttered Chicken

A friend of mine liked this dish from a restaurant called Inihaw Circle, he requested that i recreate it. The original dish is really spicy, loaded with chopped long green peppers and labuyos. My version made use of bell peppers. I also used japanese bread crumbs. I usually use deboned chicken breast for this, though regular chicken pieces are also ok. When my friend asked me to recreate this, i told him no problem, just buy the ingredients. He bought 3 whole chickens! It took me 3 hours to finish cooking.

deboned chicken breasts - cut into strips
japanese bread crumbs
bell pepper (more colors liven it up)
worcestershire sauce

1. Season the chicken with salt, pepper, paprika and worcestershire sauce. Set aside for at least an hour.

2. Roll the chicken in flour, then egg, then japanese bread crumbs.

3. Fry the chicken strips till golden brown and set aside. It's easier to fry chicken fillet than those with bones.

4. Melt butter and add the chopped bell peppers. Stir for a few minutes then add paprika.

5. Put the fried strips with the butter/bell peppper. Mix it thouroughly to spread the butter and peppers.

6. Serve immediately.
