Do you like dishes cooked in tomato-based sauce? If you will be throwing the question back to me, I’ll definitely say YES. To tell you the truth, I developed an addiction (sort of) to these type of dishes. Actually, my most favorite Filipino food, pork menudo (this was my very first recipe post, by the way), is also cooked in tomato sauce.
I asked the question because I observed that there are plenty of delectable Filipino foods cooked in tomato or tomato-based sauces. Take the Beef Mechado, Chicken Asado, Beef Kaldereta, Lengua Estofado, and even the Beef Pochero as few of the examples. I enjoy eating all these dishes and I never get tired of the taste because each of them has a unique flavor that differentiates one from the other.
Here we are with another delicious tomato-based chicken dish that will surely capture your attention: Chicken Afritada. This might be an everyday dish served in Filipino households; however, having the complete ingredients and putting some love in your cooking will definitely turn this ordinary dish into something extra-ordinary.
It is given that we all have different ways in cooking certain dishes. There might be differences in ingredients and methods but we still refer to the same dish. I am curious, and I love know how Chicken Afritada is done in the different regions of the Philippines. How do you do this in your hometown? I’ll greatly appreciate your response.
