Chicken Afritada

Chicken Afritada or afritadang manok is a type of Filipino chicken stew with tomato based sauced. It is a simple dish that can be cooked on regular days. It is perfect for lunch and is better when eaten with warm white rice.

Unlike my pork  version of  afritada where I use canned tomato sauce, I prefer fresh tomatoes in my chicken afritada. This may entail a little more effort than opening a can but it does bring a certain freshness and depth of flavor that’s worth the extra work. Give this hearty stew a try for dinner tonight and make sure to have plenty of rice ready. You’ll need it. 🙂
