Since there are so many variants of Adobo, then Bicol Express definitely has some too! So today, it’s Chicken Bicol Express! A Bicol Express will not be a genuine one if we don’t put tons of chili! So put as much chili that you believe you can partake! The spicier, the better! 🌶
I liked the dish I prepared but I have hoped that I put in more chili. Nevertheless, still a success! You should try this dish too if you prefer chicken over pork. Here is the Chicken Bicol Express recipe.
