“Mickey and friends are here to share a special chicken adobo recipe! #FilipinoAmericanHistoryMonth,” the posts’ captions all read.

In the illustrated recipe, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy can be seen smiling at a pot of adobo, a beloved staple of Filipino cuisine that typically includes ingredients such as soy sauce, bay leaves, garlic, sugar, water, vinegar and black peppercorn.

Filipino artist and recent California State University graduate Bianca Austria created the illustration. In her own Instagram post about the project, she shared that it had “been in the works for a few weeks now… For Filipino American History Month, I had the honor of working with @disney to bring to life an illustrated chicken adobo recipe!”

“It is now live on their feed but obviously had to post on my page for you all!!! Thank you to the team at Choreus and Disney for having me on board, although this project was short and sweet, it’s definitely one for the books,” she continued.

Filipino American History Month, which is celebrated annually in October, became federally acknowledged in 2009. According to the Filipino American National Historical Society, it “commemorates the first recorded presence of Filipinos in the continental United States” in 1587.
