Are you tired of your Week 1: Adobo; Week 2: Tinola; Week 3: Fried Chicken?
If your answer is YES, here’s the Chicken Asado recipe from Yummy magazine’s website. It’s sweet, savory… very kid friendly!
Here’s a close-up look, if you’re still not yet convinced.
Here’s some fancy props I used to tell a story (the true story behind this chopsticks was: I bought it for P60 at Greenhills, I saw it at Regalong Pambahay in Trinoma at P120. Do your math.).
And finally, here’s the recipe to make your own chicken asado:
2 tablespoons cooking oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, diced
1 kilo bone-in chicken thighs
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 200 grams tomato sauce or banana ketchup
2 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon 5-spice powder
4 pieces star anise
2 cups water
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 Heat the cooking oil in a cooking pot. Saute garlic and onion until browned.
2 Add the chicken thighs and cook until browned.
3 Pour the soy sauce and tomato sauce, while stirring constantly. Add the 5-spice powder, star anise, and sugar.
4 Add 1 to 2 cups of water and let it boil over low heat for about 30 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
5 Season with salt and ground black pepper. Serve with warm rice.
