Chicken dish it’s combined with tomato sauce and some vegetables like carrots and green peas. My mom taught me how to cook it different from the traditional Afritada that the Filipinos and Spanish cook. There are many versions of this dish that I believe was originated in the Philippines. I know how to cook versions of Afritada but I find Chicken afritada more appealing. I gathered recipes from my mom and I am going to share with you the best of them. Here is the recipe:
