Chicken Kare-Kare

Experiments in the kitchen don't end.

I know how ox stripe tastes like. I already cooked pork kare-kare. Now, I used chicken as the main ingredient in this very Pinoy recipe. I haven’t tried cooking this dish from scratch since I am using the Mama Sita’s Kare-kare mix.

You will need:

½ kilo chicken
3 pieces eggplant, sliced diagonally to about 1” thick
1 medium-sized banana blossom (puso ng saging), chuncked
1 bundle pechay
1 bundle string beans, cut into 2 inches long
1 medium-sized onion, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 pack Mama Sita’s Kare-kare powder mix dissolved in 1 cup water

Here’s how to do it:

Sauté onion, garlic. Add chicken and continue sautéing until rendered. Add the mama sita’s kare-kare mix and additional 2 cups water. Simmer and add banana blossom, eggplant and string beans. Simmer until all the veggies are cooked. Add pechay and simmer for about 2 minutes.

Serve with sautéed shrimp paste.
