Deliciously Healthy Chicken Adobo Recipe

Studies show people eat more standing up than when sitting down. And since this is a perfectly healthy group meal, I say make a bunch of it, gather the family, sit down and enjoy it — while chatting about your day, week, or whatever. Family meal time is good for you and so is the chicken Adobo.
