Chicken Afritada

Can't get to Sassy Lawyer's site? Her server is down and so she created a temporary site. Here's the link:

One familiar Filipino dish I love cooking. I'd like to call this a chicken stew because cooking this is like cooking a beef stew sans tomato sauce. Instead, I used the Mama Sita Caldereta Mix to make it more appealing. You don't need a lot to prepare this.

Ingredients:

2 tbsp of olive oil
6 pieces of nugget potatoes, peeled and cut in quarters
1 lb of chicken breast cut in small pieces
1 medium onion, quartered
1 medium carrot peeled and cut into about 2 cm thick
1/4 cup of water
1/2 red pepper
1/2 green pepper
1 pack of caldereta mix

In a deep saucepan, heat oil. Add potatoes and cover pan. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionaly. Add chicken. cover pan for another 5 minutes or until chicken is tender. Add carrots and onions and cook for about 2 minutes. Add water and let boil.

Season with caldereta mix. Add the red and green pepper and the frozen green peas. Cover pan for another 5 minutes. Turn off oven and let stand for about 5 minutes. Serve.

Ting-Aling, I was dropping by to check and look for your all time favourite Adobo recipe (i remember you wrote about it late last year). And now I chanced upon this Chicken Afritada dish, perhaps I'll try this instead.
