Chicken Afritada

{{totalReview}}
Looking for a festive dish for your holiday party? Check out this Chicken Afritada recipe by Anton Amoncio. Afritada was derived from the Spanish word “fritada” which means “fried” The common vegetable ingredients used in this dish are potato, carrot, and bell pepper, but you can substitute bell peppers with celery and carrots with other root vegetables like beetroot or turnips for a different twist. The star of this Filipino dish is none other than the marinated chicken, which is stewed in tomato sauce and seasoned with fish sauce to give it that nice umami taste. Whip this up for Christmas dinner for a hearty feast!
