5 cloves garlic, crushed
salt and pepper

This is a favorite Filipino dish and is extremely easy to make.

Chicken Adobo
(serves 2)

2 chicken breasts
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 cup water
3-4 garlic cloves, crushed
prepared couscous or rice

In a large pot, mix one part each soy sauce and white vinegar with two parts water. (For two people, one part = 1/2 cup, adjust for greater number of servings.)

Add crushed garlic cloves to taste (3-4 cloves, more for true garlic hounds).

Bring pot to simmer. Add chicken to pot. Simmer covered for 1 1/2 to 2 hours (until chicken is tender and very dark from the sauce).

Serve chicken over plain couscous (or rice) with sauce poured over both.
