How to cook Chicken Salpicao
Salpicao is a dish of Spanish or Portuguese origin—though the Spanish “salpicar”, which means “to fleck with” and the Portuguese salpicao involving sausage from different kinds of meat are much different from what we eat here in the Philippines. This much-beloved delicacy is traditionally made by sautéing small cubes of beef sirloin with garlic and olive oil, often with soy sauce or Worcestershire sauce added for flavor.
In this version, chicken is a leaner substitute for beef which is still packed with protein—choosing chicken will cut the risk of developing a stroke, and it has much fewer calories. Choosing chicken also means no more worrying about using too chewy a cut for beef, as well-cooked chicken is tender and melts in your mouth. Olive oil can help prevent some cancers, reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and is one of the healthiest fats you can eat. The tasty sautéed garlic in salpicao is a seasoning that lowers cholesterol levels and is rich in Vitamins C and B6, as well as manganese—it also helps reduce symptoms if you have a cold!
