How to cook Chicken Asado

It’s pretty understandable why a lot of people tend to get easily confuse Chicken Asado with Chicken Afritada.

To begin with, both are Pinoy-style chicken stew and both uses tomato sauce. The main difference? Well, Afritada is cooked using a variety of ingredients such as bell pepper, carrots, green peas, potatoes, sausages, and more. Asado, on the other hand, is comparably a lot less complicated to prepare. In fact, it only requires a few ingredients such as tomatoes, onions, and garlic.

Those from Pampanga and Bulacan have their own way, albeit strikingly similar, of cooking this recipe. Both provinces have also embraced the popular dish as one of their specialties. Nowadays, Asado is being served not only in many Filipino homes but even in neighborhood Karinderias and classy restaurants.

Again, this food only requires little preparation and most ingredients can be easily found in your kitchen. If you are a busy person, this can be a quick idea for your family’s lunch or dinner.

What makes Chicken Asado really desirable is its brilliant taste that effectively combines sweet, sour, and salty flavors. It’s also rich in potassium, sodium, carbohydrates and Vitamin C.
