7 Chicken Salpicao Recipe 

A salpicao is a dish that is normally made with chunks of beef, mushrooms, and lots of garlic in a very flavorful sauce. It's a stir fry that is easy to cook and even easier to eat since it's usually a pulutan or bar chow dish. Skip the bar and make it for yourself (and your friends and family, too) instead. Make it easy to cook and not mess up cooking the beef by swapping the beef with chicken so it not only cooks fast and easily but also makes it foolproof. 

You can even grill the chicken first before tossing it into the sauce for an extra flavorful meal.
