How to cook the famous Filipino Chicken Curry

Chicken Curry Recipe Filipino style is a variation of the local Ginataang Manok where the chicken is cooked in coconut milk. The only difference is in Chicken Curry we have added the Curry powder plus the vegetable and other spices to increase the flavor.

In most places the terms “chicken curry” and “curry chicken” are interchangeable. However, in some countries there is a considered difference between the two terms, even though both dishes include curry and chicken.  While different version renders its distinct taste and presentation, the underlying flavors of chicken curry are pretty much the same, it is very spicy, rich, aromatic and highly addictive.

My wife and I love this delicious Filipino Chicken Curry version and make it all the time.
