Today, I want to share with you my love for Filipino cuisine by showing you how to make one of my favorite dishes, chicken adobo with quail eggs. It’s a beautiful blend of savory and tangy flavors that will make your taste buds dance with joy. So, let’s dive into the recipe!

First, let’s start with the ingredients:

– 1.5 lbs of bone-in chicken thighs
– ½ cup of apple cider vinegar
– ½ cup of soy sauce
– ½ cup of water
– 1 tablespoon of sugar
– 1 teaspoon of black pepper
– 2 garlic cloves, minced
– 2 bay leaves
– 8 quail eggs

Now that we have all of our ingredients, we can start cooking this delicious dish. Here are the steps to follow:

1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the chicken over medium heat until browned on both sides.

2. Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.

3. Pour in the apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, water, sugar, black pepper, and bay leaves.

4. Bring the liquid to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let the chicken simmer in the sauce for 30-40 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked and the sauce has thickened.

5. While the chicken is cooking, put the quail eggs in a separate pot and boil for about 2-3 minutes, then peel and set aside.

6. Once the chicken is fully cooked, remove it from the pot and set it on a plate.

7. Add the quail eggs to the pot with the sauce and bring to a boil for a couple of minutes, until the eggs are heated through and coated in the sauce.

Now that you know how to make this delicious dish, let me tell you it tastes even better when you add your own twist to it. For example, you can add a bit of ginger and red pepper flakes to give it a little bit of heat, or you can add some chopped vegetables like carrots or sweet potatoes to make it a more hearty meal.
