We’re celebrating the incredible cuisine of the Philippines in this dish, one of the staples of the archipelago. In Filipino, the word “adobo” simply means “sauce.” But it typically describes a special type of sauce with a uniquely flavorful combination of ingredients. Made with garlic, vinegar and soy sauce, adobo is deliciously aromatic and tangy. In this recipe, we’re mixing in tender bok choy leaves and finishing the succulent chicken thighs in it with a quick braise.
