Filipino Dish

A classic dish I grew up eating! My lola(grandmother) made it the best!

The slow braising of the chicken in bay leaves, the peppercorns, the oily soy sauce which also contained vinegar was my comfort dish !

According to Google the origin of this dish is as follows:

"When the Spanish Empire colonized the Philippines in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, they encountered the adobo cooking process. It was first recorded in the 1613 dictionary Vocabulario de la lengua tagala compiled by the Spanish Franciscan missionary Pedro de San Buenaventura."
