Chicken Afritada Recipe


Chicken Afritada Recipe

( Mj's recipe)

 Chicken Afritada is just basically stew with tomato based sauce. It's kinda look same with Pork Menudo   but differ on taste. It is also very popular to most Carinderia's in the Philippines. I remembered my college days, eating at Carinderia's with my friends during lunch time. It was FUN! and chicken afritada is always on the menu. It's the bright red/orange color that make it so inviting to eat and the smell is irresistible.
So, Last week, I brought some cassava cake  to my friends house for our lunch get together. Rachel, made some delicious hot spicy chicken with beans, I forgot the name of the dish ( hahah) Rose, made some pork adobo and Mj brought some chicken afritada, its very yummy! So, this dish today was inspired by my friend MJ. It's her version of chicken afritada and to tell you its very easy to make at home.. This is also perfect for potluck party, family gatherings or simply just for family dinner..:)
C'mon let's start cooking and be inspired with this Chicken Afritada Recipe:)

  9. My kids like menudo so I think they would also like afritada. I actually cook tomato sauce-based viand but I just don't really know if it is menudo or afritada... What's the difference?

    1. The only difference between the two is the ingredients that you put into it, the cut of veggies and meat used. It just my opinion, I don't really know.:)..

  12. This isn't only tasty, it's also very easy to cook. Our afritada at home is made richer with a bit of grated cheese added just right before you turn the heat off. :)
