In my husband’s place, chicken is happened to be their favorite type of meat. They often cook chicken adobo, chicken tinola, chicken fillet. I love chicken too but sometimes eating same chicken recipes over and over again is tiresome, right? For a change, I decided to take charge in the kitchen. So I looked for recipes online that we’ve never try.

  • At this point, the chicken is well cooked. You can now integrate the pineapple chunks, carrots, and potatoes. Pressed down the added ingredients and cover. Simmer for 12 minutes.

  • Add the last ingredients— red and green bell pepper and cook for only 3 minutes, that is if you want it crunchy like I do. In addition, you can use one color, but for me I love the contrast of these two.
  • Turn off the heat and transfer into a nice serving bowl. Enjoy with steamed rice.

This dish is rich in carbohydrates and protein. And because it has carrots and pineapples, it is packed with fiber, Vitamin C and A. Try to serve it at your home too and tell me your story in the comment section.
