This dish is one of my favorites, so as my son Dan. I do this recipe at lest once a month. sometimes I cook it with pork, but most of the time, I do chicken. This was our dinner last Monday night.



1 whole chicken, cut into small pieces

1/2 cup chicken liver and gizzard (optional)

1/2 cup soy sauce

1 small can of tomato sauce

3 pcs. of bay leaves

1 whole red bell pepper (sliced)

2 large sized potatoes (cut in small pieces)

1/2 tsp. ground pepper

salt to taste

a pinch of MSG (optional)

1 tsp. garlic minced

1/2 medium sized onion, sliced)

2 tbs. cooking oil


1. Sautee garlic and onion in a large pot using 2 tbsp. cooking oil.

2.  Add the chicken and the gizzard, soy sauce and at least 2 cups of water, ground pepper, bay leaves and half of the red bell pepper.

3.  Stir  frequently to avoid burning at the bottom.  Add water as needed to boil the chicken . When chicken  is almost done, add tomato sauce and the liver.

4.  Let boil for at least 4-5 minutes, when chicken  is really tender to your satisfaction, add potatoes.

5.   Let boil and when potatoes are almost done, add the rest of the bell pepper, salt to taste and MSG if you prefer.

6. Makes 8-10 servings.

CLARISSA, ay madali lang talaga. Gisa gisa lang yan..Ang hubby ko kumakain din ng apritada pero ayaw niya ng chicken, may buto raw..takot sa mga maliliit na buto..

CECILE, Masarap siya ate Ces, gusto ko yung sabas nya, lalo kung malapot. Mas gusto ko ang ginigisa ko ang chicken kesa sa ready mix..
