Having been cooking since my grade school days, this recipe is I think the very first dish that I was able to master through all these years. But this one is not your usual afritada. This is a "sweet version" which makes it a bit more of a "Filipino style" of cooking. Hope you will enjoy!

Ingredients:


1 kilo chicken, cut into pieces approximately 1.5 inch
4 pieces potatoes, peeled and cut into 4 per piece
2 pcs carrots diced
1 red onion, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 green bell pepper, cut into strips
1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 cup tomato sauce
2 tablespoons patis (fish sauce)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons cooking oil
1 tablespoon sugar
3 cups chicken stock
ground black pepper & bay leaves (quantity according to your taste)

Cooking Instruction:

1. In a cooking pot or wok, heat oil.
2. Sauté garlic until golden brown then add the onions. Sauté until translucent.
3. Add chicken and stir fry until slightly brown.
4. Add potatoes and carrots continue to cook for 5 minutes.
5. Add black pepper and bayleaves.
6. Pour the soy and fish sauce then the stock. Bring to a boil then add the tomato sauce and allow to simmer for 5 minutes or until the potatoes and carrots are almost cooked.
7. Add the sugar and the green and red bell peppers. Stir and simmer for 2 minutes.8. Salt and pepper to taste.

Note: In the absence of tomato sauce, we can use banana catsup. Just exclude the sugar and add 1 tablespoon vinegar after the ingredients have been cooked.

Mechado is a beef dish and menudo has almost the same sauce as afritada but menudo has pork liver and green peas and the cuts of the meat are small. You can make pork afritada but I've never heard of chicken menudo. =)

Caldereta can do without tomato sauce but has to have liverspread and cheese.
