Chicken Sprite Adobo

Here is another version of chicken adobo. It is a sweet style version of adobo because it contains Sprite softdrink instead of sugar. Anyway some who cook adobo are adding some sugar to improve the taste or I guess they have a sweet tooth. But in my opinion, making the adobo a little sweet tastes better than just salty and garlicky. So I think you should try this recipe because it is so easy to cook and requires just half an hour of cooking time. If you can’t find Sprite, you can use 7-Up or any similar softdrink.
