Pork and Chicken Afritada

Pork and Chicken Afritada
Pork and Chicken Afritada. Afritada is one of the Pinoy dish that is as popular with adobo and kaldereta to non-Filipino. In fact it would be safe to say that it is more acceptable to a non-Filipino because it is milder in taste compared to the tangy adobo and spicy kaldereta. Often times it is usually one of the food choice of some airline on-board meals that fly to Manila. Being a frequent traveler I had chicken afritada on other airlines besides Philippine Airlines on my trips back to Manila.

Today I would like to share an afritada dish of pork and chicken combination. For this afritada version I used pork belly and chicken thighs, and canned crushed tomatoes. The result was more delicious, not only because of the complimentary flavors of pork and chicken but also because of the texture of the canned crushed tomatoes. Here is the recipe of my Pork and Chicken Afritada.



1 kilo pork belly or pork chop, cut into cut into serving pieces
1/2 kilo chicken tights, cut into serving pieces
1/2 head garlic, chopped
2 medium size onion, chopped
1 big canned crushed tomatoes
3 medium sized potatoes, quartered
1 medium size carrot, cut into wedges

3-5 pcs. bay leaf
2 tsp. dried parley flakes

salt and pepper
