Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep and brown the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken, skin side down, and cook until the skin is golden brown but the meat is not yet cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the chicken and cook for 30 seconds. Transfer the chicken to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Spoon off all but 1 to 2 tablespoons fat from the pan. While the chicken browns, start preparing the vegetables.

2

Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Peel and coarsely chop the onion.
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into ½-inch-wide strips.
  • Scrub or peel the potatoes. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Cut each half lengthwise into ½-inch-thick slices, then crosswise into ½-inch cubes.
  • Scrub or peel the carrot and trim the ends; cut the carrot on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.
In the same pan used for the chicken, add the onion and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the bell pepper, potatoes, and carrot, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 4 to 6 minutes.

3

Finish the chicken afritada

To the pan with the vegetables, stir in the tomato sauce base, “oyster sauce” blend, and 1 cup [2 cups] water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, nestle the chicken among the vegetables, and add any accumulated juices. Cook until the vegetables are tender and the chicken is cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the peas. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
