Popular Filipino recipes include deep fried bananas and chicken adobo. According to PhilStar.com, some of the most popular Filipino dishes include lechon, which is a whole roasted pig; pansit, or noodles that are either stir-fried or cooked in a broth; and sinigang, a clear soup made with sour fruit.
To make deep-fried bananas, cut bananas in half and then cut the pieces in half lengthwise. Roll a banana piece in brown sugar, and then wrap it in a lumpia or egg roll wrapper, covering the banana completely. Prepare each piece of banana in this manner, and set it aside. Heat oil in a fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Using a slotted spoon, gently place three or four wrapped bananas in oil for approximately 30 seconds. Remove them with a slotted spoon, and place them on a paper towel to soak up excess oil. Repeat this process with all the bananas, and serve them when cool.
To prepare chicken adobo, combine 4 to 5 pounds of chicken thighs, 1/2 cup of white vinegar, 1/2 cup of soy sauce, crushed garlic, pepper and bay leaves in a large pot. Cover the pot and marinate in the refrigerator. After one to three hours, bring a chicken to a boil over high heat. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove the lid and simmer the mixture for another 20 minutes until the liquid is reduced and thickened. Serve immediately over rice.
