Adobong Manok sa Patis

I have to admit, I am not an organized shopper. Heck, I am not an organized anything. I’ll go in to a store and come out with a thousand things other than what I came in for. This adobong manok sa patis was a result of one occasion when I was intent on making adobo and had the chicken already cut up, only to find myself out of soy sauce but with two bottles of fish sauce. I have to say, my adobong manok sa patis turned out better than I expected and it is now my preferred way to cook chicken adobo even with soy sauce in the pantry.
