Chicken Afritada

Fried Shrimp, Chicken Adobo, Chicken Afritada and sliced ripe Mangoes

I got this recipe from my good friend, Mary hausmann, who cooked the food on the above pic. I haven't tried cooking chicken afritada yet but I have tried eating it using the same recipe. It tastes good and for sure hubby would love it. You might like it too.

1 kilo chicken, cut into pieces
3 pieces potatoes, peeled and halved
carrots & green peas
1 red onion, diced
1 clove 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 or soy sauce (fish sauce)
3 tablespoons of cooking oil

Chicken Afritada 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, carrots & green peas and continue to cook for 10 minutes or until cooked.

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

Salt and pepper to taste
