Serves 5

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 45 minutes


12 cloves garlic, crushed

1/2 tablespoon black peppercorns, cracked

1 whole chicken, sliced into pieces

1/2 cup vinegar



1 In a medium bowl, combine chicken, MAGGI® SOY SAUCE, vinegar and garlic, mix until the chicken is well-coated with soy sauce and vinegar.

2 Boil chicken mixture over medium heat for 5-10 minutes.

3 Set aside some of the sauce and let the chicken simmer until the remaining sauce dries and the chicken cooks in its own oil.

4 When the chicken is browned on both sides, add the sauce on a separate bowl and simmer until the chicken is tender.

5 Serve on top of steaming white rice.


The secret ingredient to this delicious adobo recipe is MAGGI® SOY SAUCE. It gives your dish the right blend of saltiness with a hint of sweetness and linamnam. When you go shopping for your soy sauce, turn the bottle upside down. You’ll see that MAGGI® SOY SAUCE is latak-less, meaning there’s no residue at the bottom! It is made with select soya beans that go through a natural fermentation process for months. The resulting flavor would definitely turn the ordinary meals you prepare into delightful specialties that your family will love.
