Chicken Salpicao Recipe

Swap the beef for a salpicao meal that's just as satisfying.

Beef may be classic when it comes to salpicao but switching to chicken is a great idea. It not only makes this recipe just as delicious as the original but also makes it easy to cook. There’s no overcooking the beef and chicken absorbs the flavors so well. You might not miss the beef if you give this version a try!
