Chicken & Pork Afritada

Chicken & Pork Afritada

One of my favorite recipes! Its thick dark red sauce is the secret and know why?....


  • 3/4 kilo chicken & 1/2 kilo pork belly (liempo), cut into pieces
  • 5 pieces potatoes peeled & quartered
  • 3 pieces carrots peeled & cut into 1/2 inches
  • 1 large red onion chopped
  • 1 head garlic minced
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into squares
  • 3 200 grams sachet of tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 pcs. chicken cubes
  • 3 tbsp. cooking oil (canola oil)
  • 2 pcs. laurel leaves
  • 1 tsp. black pepper corn
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 pcs. chili/ sili labuyo minced or a pinch of ground red pepper, for those who want to add a little kick! (optional)


  1. Sauté garlic and onions in heated canola oil in a pot then add chicken & pork, stir.
  2. Cover & simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.
  3. Add tomato sauce, water & chicken cubes, then stir and cover.
  4. Bring to a boil over low-med heat and allow to simmer for 20 minutes or until the chicken & pork is almost cooked.
  5. Add potatoes, carrots, pepper corn, bell pepper & laurel and continue to cook for 10 minutes or until cooked.
  6. Remove excess oil for a more healthier sauce. (oil extracted from chiken & pork fat)
  7. Add salt, freshly ground pepper, & chili (optional) to taste, slightly stir.
  8. Serve hot & enjoy!


Cooking tips! First, let the chicken & pork simmer over low heat to bring out their natural juices. It makes the dish tastier and tender. Another important tip, tomato sauce should be well-cooked, (thick & dark red in color) bright red means under-cooked and tastes sour. That's the secret of my delicious Chicken & Pork Afritada! My family loves it so much & is one of their favorites. Try it & enjoy! :)
