MANILA - Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow decided to take on Filipino cuisine, trying out the highly-popular local dish -- the chicken adobo.

In her lifestyle website Goop, Paltrow recently posted the recipe of the dish, matching it with waffles and dipping sauce made from lemon juice, maple syrup, peppers, and soy sauce.

"This is Filipino adobo, not the Spanish version. The vinegar brightens the richness of the fried chicken and helps with digestion," she wrote in her post.

Paltrow kept it simple with her adobo -- letting the chicken simmer in the broth of white vinegar, bay leaves, garlic, sugar, soy sauce, salt, pepper flakes, and peppercorns.

She then dunked the pieces in buttermilk before taking it out to be breaded and fried.

The Oscar-winning actress suggests, however, that one add or lessen the amount of chiles "depending on how much heat you like."

Paltrow started Goop, a weekly digital publication, in 2008 "to share all of life's positives."

She previously featured the local brand Datu Puti, as she attempted to give an Asian flavor to her local vegetable dish by using the Filipino condiment.

"From creating a delicious recipe to finding a perfect dress for spring, Gwyneth began curating the best of lifestyle to help her readers save time, simplify and feel inspired," the website said.
