Adobo Chicken Recipe

Blue Wave Bar & Grill

This is one of the recipes that Executive Chef Marc Brislin created to add elements of Asian fusion to the Blue Wave Bar and Grill dinner menu.

Cook Tip: This dish would go well with a slightly spicy white wine or even a lightly hoppy beer. For chicken, you can brine the breasts in a salty liquid and add some sugar to keep them moist and add some solid flavor. Cook chicken to 165 degrees so just use the cooking time as a rough gauge. Use an oven thermometer to pierce the skin in thickest part of the bird to get proper temperature.
