Chicken Afritada

Whether it's a special occasion or just when you feel like eating it, afritada is an easy dish to make. While pork afritada is the more popular one, the chicken variant is also a favorite. Using poultry makes this dish a lot healthier than red meat at the same time cooking time is faster.
Here's a simple recipe for Chicken Afritada

  • 3/4 kilo chicken, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup red and green bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 pc potato, cubed
  • 1 pc carrot, sliced 
  • 1 cup chicken broth (or use bouillon cubes dissolved in water) 
  • 1/4 cup green peas
  • 1 cup tomato sauce (or 1/3 cup tomato paste)
  • 5 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 pcs onions, quartered
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooking oil
  1. Saute garlic and onion.
  2. Add the chicken and stir fry for 5 minutes.
  3. Mix-in tomato sauce and chicken broth.
  4. Bring to a boil then simmer until the chicken is tender and almost cooked.
  5. Add carrots and potatoes then simmer until cooked.
  6. Finally add green peas, and bell peppers and simmer for another 3 minutes.
  7. Season with salt and pepper.

The measurements are just guides and you can adjust according to your taste. At times, I add a tablespoon of hot sauce or sriracha sauce to give my afritada a kick in every bite. Also add some cheese to make it creamier. Enjoy!
