Over the years, Meghan Markle has revealed her love of cooking. Express.co.uk recently shared the Duchess of Sussex’s former mac ’n’ cheese recipe and another meal she likes to create is a slow-cooked chicken dish perfect for “Sunday suppers”.
Garlic is one ingredient the Queen is said to dislike, another is onions.
Despite them both being key elements to a lot of tasty dishes, the monarch reportedly loathes them and considers it poor manners to have unpleasant breath when meeting new people.
Meghan, however, like many people, loves garlic and onions and they are necessary for her slow-cooked chicken dish.
Back in 2012, Meghan revealed how she is “a big fan of Sunday suppers”.
She explained: “Whether we’re eating lamb tagine, pot roast or a hearty soup, the idea of gathering for a hearty meal with friends and family on a Sunday makes me feel comforted.
“I enjoy making slow-cooked food on Sundays, like Filipino-style chicken adobo.
“It’s so easy – combine garlic, soy, vinegar, maybe some lemon and let the chicken swim in that sauce until it falls off the bone in a Crock Pot.
“I have a beautiful Le Creuset that could also do the trick, but the Sunday supper ‘Americana’ of it all calls for a Crock Pot.
“Set it and forget it and serve with brown rice and salad,” she told Today.
Filipino Chicken Adobo is the national dish of the Philippines and like all traditional dishes, there are many variations – including different proteins like pork and beef.
Fundamentally though, the key ingredients are the right balance of soy sauce, vinegar, black pepper and sugar that create an incredibly sticky glaze and a deep flavour.
Boneless skinless chicken thighs – you can’t substitute with chicken breast as you need the fat to transform the sauce into a glaze
Soy sauce – all-purpose or light soy sauce, not dark soy sauce
White vinegar – just everyday, plain white vinegar. Sub with any clear vinegar, including rice wine, apple cider, sherry vinegar
Onion and garlic
Sugar – brown is best, white can be used
Bay leaves – fresh or dried
Spring onions – optional garnish
1. Add all ingredients to a bowl and marinate for 20 minutes.
2. Remove chicken and sear in a hot pan
3. Add marinade into pan and simmer for 25 minutes – it will look watering up until the last few minutes then it will transform into a syrup/glaze.
4. Finish with sliced spring onions and serve with rice and a side of fresh green salad.
To complete this meal, Meghan favours a glass of wine.
In fact, an Italian wine called Tignanello was the inspiration behind the name for her lifestyle blog, The Tig, which she closed in 2017.
Meghan previously told Best Health: “Of course, I’m going to have that glass of wine – it’s delicious and I enjoy it.
“Do the things you enjoy within reason. Know your body and what works for you and you’ll be fine.”
It comes as The Mail on Sunday reports Meghan’s lawyers have filed a new application to trademark “The Tig” name back in July 2021.
Speaking about the story behind the ‘Tig’ name, Meghan told People: “[Trying Tignanello wine] was my first moment of getting it – I finally understood what people meant by the body, structure, finish, legs of wine.
“The TIG is my nickname for me getting it. Not just wine, but everything.”
