WATCH: How to Make Adobong Dilaw (Yellow Chicken Adobo)

Turmeric gives this adobo dish its color and earthy flavors.

 

 

 This adobo version does not use soy sauce. Instead, turmeric (luyang dilaw) and coconut milk (gata) are added to this Filipino classic. It's earthy, salty, and savory—all the good things in an adobo dish!
