This Filipino chicken stew is a rich and flavorful meal: grated cheese and liver spread make the caldereta sauce richer while others add olives to make it a party-worthy dish.

This dish is often confused with the mechado, but this caldereta dish has a thicker and richer sauce, due in part to the cheese  and liver spread. Want to make an extra indulgent version? Play around with liver pate and sweet potatoes (kamote) to add different flavors.
