Two weekends ago, T and I were invited by Nestle to their event at the Blue Leaf Events Place in Taguig. The invite just said "Create with Cream" so T and I didn't know what to expect. When we got there, we learned that we were all going to learn how to cook Creamy Chicken Adobo using Nestle All Purpose Cream. T and I have never tried that kind of adobo so we were excited to know how!
Mr. Joey Uy of Nestle said a few words to welcome all of us that afternoon. Not long after, our host introduced Chef Rob Pengson who was going to teach us how to cook Creamy Chicken Adobo. But before moving on to the main event, we played a game of Scattergories first as an ice breaker. Chef Rob Pengson was assigned to help us in the game. How lucky! We were given categories for each letter C - R - E - A - M and we had to identify five words associated to it. The catch is that the word has to be unique, meaning no one else has used that word. Guess who won the game? ;)
After the game, Chef Rob Pengson went ahead and taught us how to cook Creamy Chicken Adobo using Nestle All Purpose Cream. First you'll need the following ingredients:
1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
1/3 cup vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
1 sachet 8g Maggi Magic Sarap
1/4 cup crushed garlic
1/2 cup oil
1 pack Nestlé All Purpose Cream 250ml
In a pot, boil chicken in vinegar, soy sauce, water, and Maggi Magic Sarap and garlic. Cook uncovered until boiling. Lower the heat and simmer while covered until chicken is tender but not disintegrated. Simmer for 10 minutes. Strain sauce and reserve.
In a large pan, heat the oil. Pan fry the chicken until golden brown. Remove excess oil. Pour in the reserved sauce and simmer with the browned chicken until sauce is almost dry.
As a final step, pour in Nestlé All Purpose Cream and remove from heat. Serve hot. That's it!
Chef Rob Pengson then asked for volunteers from the crowd to try and cook Creamy Chicken Adobo. T told me to raise my hand but I hesitated because I have ZERO kitchen skills! Looking back, I should've just tried so at least I could say that I cooked Creamy Chicken Adobo :D
Fortunately, Nestlé gave me a box which has everything I need (except for the chicken of course) to cook Creamy Chicken Adobo. I'll try to experiment at home and make this for my family.
