Chicken Adobo Volcano

Excuse us for bombarding you with Daddy A Cooks posts. It’s a long weekend and I’m feeling under the weather so the hubby took over homemaking duties. He cooked lots of yummy meals and snacks for us today, but the meal highlight of the day has got to be his Chicken Adobo Volcano!

Chicken Adobo Volcano

Adobo is A’s specialty. He cooks all kinds and continues to search for new versions he can try. This one’s my fave, though. It’s sweet and extra spicy — perfect for a momma who has a cold! But it being spicy isn’t the only reason why he calls it “adobo volcano.” It may look like a huge pile of rice, but it is actually just a cup of rice with a hole in the middle like a volcano. Inside the hole are tender spicy chicken adobo bits. I love how the sauce overflows on the sides and topped with slices of boiled egg and lettuce strips.

If you want to try this dish out, you’ll need:

  • chicken bits
  • 1 medium-sized onion
  • half a bulb of garlic
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 cup pineapple juice (he used Del Monte’s Pineapple Juice)
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • pepper (as much or as little as you want)
  • 2 pcs of laurel leaves
  • boiled eggs
  • lettuce

Cooking method:

  1. Saute onion and garlic over medium heat
  2. Once the onions look glassy, add the chicken bits and mix until the chicken is brown
  3. Add soy sauce and vinegar, mix then leave for about 5 minutes
  4. Add pineapple sauce, mix then leave for another 5 minutes
  5. Add sugar and pepper, mix well (do a taste test too to see if you want to add more sugar or pepper)
  6. Lower the heat then let it simmer until the sauce thickens
  7. Serve with steamed rice and top with pieces of boiled eggs and strips of lettuce

It’s actually very easy, but I can’t cook it as well as A does. *boohoo* 5 stars for this chicken adobo dish and an extra star for presentation! 😀
