Chicken Caldereta

Chicken Caldereta is chicken stewed in tomato sauce with potatoes, carrots, green peas and bell pepper,. Chicken can also be made into caldereta just like goat and beef. This is my version using chicken breast.


1/2 kilo kg chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
1/4 cup vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
minced garlic
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pouch tomato sauce
1 small can liver spread
2 pcs medium sized bell pepper, sliced into cubes
1/3 cup frozen green peas
2 medium potatoes, cube
1 small carrot, cubed
1/2 cup grated cheese

In a bowl combine vinegar, salt, pepper and garlic then mix thoroughly. Add the chicken cubes and mix well. Marinate for at least an hour.
Heat oil in a pan. Fry the potatoes and carrots are almost done. Set aside.
Drain the chicken from marinade and fry briefly in the oil. Set aside.
Saute the onion on medium heat until soft and translucent then add garlic from the marinade. Saute for a few minutes. Add chicken, the rest of the marinade, tomato sauce, bell pepper, liver spread . Mix well to combine. Add potatoes and peas. Simmer until potatoes and carrots are cooked. Add grated cheese, mix well until cheese has melted. Adjust seasoning and simmer for a minute or two. Serve.
