Filipino Food Fridays: Arroz Caldo at Manok

A couple of YouTube users–drlilibeth and J.C.–asked me to make Arroz Caldo for my weekly Filipino Food Fridays YouTube cooking segment, so I did! I don’t know why I waited so long, especially since I learned I enjoy rice dishes, like Arroz a la Valenciana, that I made earlier.

The recipe called for chicken pieces, but I used drumsticks at the suggestion of a fellow Filipino at the Filipino grocery store by my home. I asked her opinion; she didn’t go sticking her nose in my business. She was very nice, which is not what I’m used to from having been to other grocery stores all my life.

The Arroz Caldo at Manok turned out to be very delicious, even though I forgot to add the white pepper. It was quite strange; white pepper was on the list of ingredients, but because it wasn’t mentioned during the recipe, I forgot to add it! So I added it later–after I finished filming the video–and I think I added too much!

Warning, the video includes a shot of me eating an entire can of Pik-Nik shoestring potatoes while I wait for the Arroz Caldo at Manok to cook! Those fries are great!

I really enjoy making a new Filipino dish each week–so I can learn how to cook, and so I can get closer to my Filipino culture–so please let me know what dish I should make next. Send me a tweet: @gerrardpanahon.

Maraming salamat!

    Correct me if im wrong. Bakit ang recipe mo tinawag mong Arroz Caldo at Manok. Ang alam ko kapag nagluto ka ng Arroz Caldo e talagang ang sangkap nun e manok kaya ang tawag dun plain Arroz Caldo lang…

  • quiason

    Neil, that’s right! I remember enjoying this dish on cold days!

    Arnold, I hear you. From now on, I’ll refer to it as Arroz Caldo! Yay!
