A take on Chicken Adobo

Happy New Year to everyone! Thank you all for supporting the blog and for sticking around. This Year i have so much in the pipeline from new bars, new restaurants, projects and ideas for the blog and i am so very excited for all you to be a part of this.

To start the year, i decided to post about my fun, light and incredibly easy (and bastardized version of a Filipino Chicken Adobo), love it or hate it, it doesn’t really matter (i personally love it). It is definitely not traditional, so don’t hate! But for those of you who love the flavour profiles of adobo or who want to try a simple version, give it a whack.

Next week, i will post about a 4 week plan for you to lose all that weight you gained during the holidays (raise your hands).

      Hi Erwan,
      I’m a mom of a 19months old baby girl and a wife, I’m working full time, and we are working abroad as a OFW, i love to cook for my husband and daugther, since i read your article it just make me want to cook more healthy foods since my husband wants to stay fit, I’m just wondering if you can help me with regards on how i can plan well for our dinner since my husband is working late until 8pm, and then thats the only time we can eat diner but it could be more late everytime we run 3x a week, so, as much as i would want to eat alone it just making me feel guilty, and most of the time we eat diner in a fastfood or shawarma, i know sharwarma is a bit healthier than the fastfood chains, if im not mistaken shawarma is just a breast chicken which is being cooked in a grill, some vegetables and sauces which is a garlic sauce or TAHINA..i know eating late is not healthy because after we eat you will just go to sleep,so, if we eat with carbs we wont be burning it, i also feel guilty during the weekend,because this is the only time we relax, im cooking pasta and drinking red wine after his working hours.
      what are the other healthy options and recipes that you may suggest that i dont have to feel guilty for eating late at night.
      Hoping to hear from you soon :)

      Hello Erwan I became an instant fan of yours. I am a mom of a 10 yr old very picky eater kid, since I have a very bad genes I changed a lot of my eating habits, from bad to a healthy one. But as a working mom it is sometimes very hard to stay focused, but you inspired me to continue cooking and eating healthy, which I want my son to follow. I will make sure we will follow your blog. We love to watch cooking show together. Keep up the good work and continue inspiring the young generation. More blessings and success.

        That’s the pecerft insight in a thread like this.

      Learning a ton from these neat arscliet.




I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
