Gatas Salbahe with Chicken Adobo in Coco Milk

Chicken adobo in coconut milk (gata) is an upscale of Filipino classic dish, adobo. Normally, the usual adobo always has a cooking method that involves the use of vinegar, in which it came all the way from Spanish era in Philippines.

Without a coco milk, my ratio of soy sauce to vinegar is always 3:1. You can always have your own measurement depending on the taste you want to reach. However, a chicken adobo with coconut milk, my ratio is the same. On this occasion, I have a low amount of water at the beginning then infused with delicious milk in the end so that I can still have my adobo a bit soupy.

If you want this recipe a bit sweet, try adjusting it with few pinches of sugar.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup of water
750g chicken pieces, bone-in, cut up
1/2 cup soy sauce (Silver Swan preferably)
3T vinegar (Datu Puti preferably)
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1pc medium onion, sliced
1tsp black pepper, cracked
2 bay leaves, dried
1pc small tomato, wedge
2 pcs small potatoes, peeled, cut into 4
1 cup coconut milk
salt, to tatse
pepper, to taste

Procedures:
In a casserole, put water, chicken, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, onion, black pepper, bay leaves, and tomato.Boil for 3 mins. Allow the mixture to be stewed for 10-15mins. While stewing. add potatoes halfway through the cooking time. Lightly stir in coconut milk to blend evenly and continue stewing for 7-10 mins. Adjust flavours with salt and pepper. To serve, top with with parsley.

    thanks.

    pwede ka namang gumawa nito, kaya lang kung nasa ibang bansa ka, mejo may kahirapan ka magtantya. iba-iba ang lasa ng mga toyo at suka kumpara satin, sakto. maiiba din ang sukat/dami ng bawat sangkap.

    i remember last time, i have a friend who made adobo chinese style (really good outcome)...but the taste was totally different from ours coz the vinegar was minimally used.

  6. @frau dietz...

    finding the right ingredients and putting everything in a pot, let it boil/simmer until chicken and potatoes are cooked :)
