Chicken Wings Afritada

chickenafritada Chicken Wings Afritada

Tomato-based dishes are one of the few good things that we inherited from those bored Spaniards who colonized the Philippines for centuries; the same conquistadors that had nothing else to do but to bug little islands in Asia in search of spices (of course).  Anyway, there are a lot of delicious dishes using tomato sauce like Caldereta, Menudo, Callos, and Afritada to mention a few. Well, we are making Chicken Afritada today and we will be using chicken wings instead of the traditional cut up chicken.

I will also use smoked chicken sausage on this dish just to add a little fun to the flavor. Of course you can use any type of smoked sausage like pork, beef, or turkey. I am only using chicken to show my loyalty and my allegiance to the chicken. Okay, okay, I don’t mean to discriminate against the pigs and the cows. Remember I’m a Catholic, so don’t worry, you’ll have your turn and you’ll have my undivided attention.
