Mom's recipe: my CHICKEN MECHADO

I found the opportunity to reinvent a recipe. I don't know if this was the typical recipe but the bottom line is, it tastes good.
Here's the recipe for my Chicken Mechado:

1/2 kilo of chicken
2 pieces of bell pepper, diced
2 pieces medium-sized carrot, diced
1/4 kilo string beans, cut into 2-3 inches
4 pieces tomatoes, diced

1 pouch tomato sauce
1 can liver spread
5 cloves of garlic, minced
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 cup water
soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste

1. Saute garlic, onions, tomatoes and add chicken.
2. Add soy sauce, sprinkle with salt and pepper and add water. Cover and simmer or until chicken is cooked.
3. Add tomato sauce and liver spread.
4. Add other vegetable ingredients, potatoes, carrots and beans. Let it simmer for around 5-8 minutes.

Makes 8 servings.


  1. Will try this out! Parang Afritada lang din noh?

  2. It really does taste good as hell. Thank you:D...not a fan of book recipes and this cuts down to that!
