Chicken Afritada

Another Filipino recipe that you will surely love. This is chicken afritada which I like better than pork afritada. I guess, I got used with chicken only because I seldom cook pork afritada. My friend always prepare chicken afritada too everytime we have a gathering or a party. Many Americans like this so if you want to please your man with Filipino dishes, this would be one of them. I posted a recipe before using the Mama Sita's Afritada/Caldereta mix which was really so good. This time, you will not use the mix. This recipe was taken from filipinofoodrecipes.net.

1 kilo chicken, cut into pieces
5 pieces potatoes, peeled and halved
1 red onion, diced
1 head garlic, minced
1 green bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
2 cups pork or chicken stock (broth)
1 cup tomato sauce
2 tablespoons of patis (fish sauce)
3 tablespoons of cooking oil

In a cooking pot or wok, heat oil.

Sauté garlic and onions.

Add chicken and slightly brown.

Pour the tomato sauce and stock. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer for 20 minutes or until the chicken is almost cooked.

Add potatoes and continue to cook for 10 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked.

Add the green and red bell peppers, simmer for an additional minute or two.

Salt and pepper to taste

Serve this chicken recipe hot with steamed rice.
