Coconut Chicken Adobo
The addition of coconut milk, while not part of every adobo recipe, softens the bright vinegar in this version, inspired by Master Sommelier June Rodil, who adds just enough to make the dish super wine-friendly. “I was born in the Philippines, and this is the staple there. Like, if you can’t make it, we’re talking disinheritance," Rodil says. After braising chicken thighs in creamy coconut milk, soy sauce, and vinegar, the braising liquid gets cooked down into a rich sauce. Pat down the chicken thighs before they finish cooking under the broiler to ensure deliciously crispy skin.
