Recipe Chicken Afritada 

Food & Places Recipes

I posted Pork Sisig yesterday and that was our lunch last Sunday. Here’s the dinner — Chicken Afritada. All kind of meat can be cooked in tomato sauce and we Filipinos call it different ways. 

  1. Pork = Menudo
  2. Beef = Caldereta or Mechado
  3. Fish = Salciado 
  4. Chicken = Afritada

Although you can mix and match them, these meat tastes better in their respective common cooking ways.
