Chicken Afritada

Trying to explore my kitchen with uncommon recipe that I don't usually cook. I used the very simple Chicken Afritada Recipe on this one.

You may also try this one here. This is a sweetened Chicken Afritada. I'll try this myself later on.

Chicken Afritada Ingredients:

  • 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

Cooking Instructions:

  • 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.
