Chicken Adobo is a Filipino recipe that you can make any where in the world as long as you have a crock pot that you can plug into the wall. Adobo is a spanish word for marinate…so if you have some members of your household who are not very adventurous, then you can truthfully say that you’re making marinated chicken for dinner.
