How do you make afritada delicious?
Two things about the afritada recipe make it irresistible: it's a stew and it's made with chicken. Because it's a stew, you know the dish has been simmered for some time so it has had time to develop its flavors and become even more flavorful. Tomatoes are fantastic when it has had time to fully combine with other ingredients.
The chicken pieces in the afritada are kept whole, meaning each piece is on the bone and will also contribute to the overall flavor of the dish. The result is an aromatic, chicken and tomato stew made heartier with vegetables and tastier with time.
