Homemade Food

It is fun to mix ingredients, cook, and taste your own homemade food. It is not often but I have been cooking at home lately. Have fun reading and perhaps cooking later!

Chicken Adobo

Marinate chicken breast slices with crushed garlic, soy sauce, bay leaves (cut into small pieces), and 1/2 tsp of sugar overnight inside the refrigerator. Use garlic-infused olive oil (remove the garlic cloves using a strainer) to cook the marinated chicken the following day. Add water (1/2 cup), some black peppercorn, and potato slices. Add a pinch of salt to taste. If you want it to be spicy, add chili pepper.

Chicken Menudo

Stir-fry diced carrots (you can also design carrot slices), diced green bell pepper, onion, and minced garlic with olive oil. Set them aside and cook chicken breast slices with olive oil. Add a mixture of soy sauce, tomato sauce, and water (1/2 cup). Let the mixture boil for ten minutes before adding potato slices. Boil until potatoes are soft enough to eat. Add the vegetables and spices you set aside and cook for another few minutes.

Chicken Con Mi Salsa

I googled the recipe for the first two dishes though I have been eating them since I can remember. I just did not have a chance to cook them myself before (well except adobo once back in college but it was barely edible). The third dish, on the other hand, was what I called a kitchen experiment. I marinated the chicken breast slices and cooked them with garlic-infused olive oil and butter. 

The second part was making the sauce. The taste is up to you. Mine was a little bit of oyster sauce, white ground pepper, chili powder, soy sauce, lime juice, tomato sauce, and sugar mixed with garlic-infused olive oil and butter. I stir-fried onion rings for a few minutes and added them to the sauce together with the chicken. The last part was sprinkling finely sliced chives.
