Chicken Sotanghon Soup

Chicken Sotanghon Soup is a Filipino soup that is recognized as a therapeutic dish to have especially when you have a cold and flu. This soup comfort you whenever you don’t feel good.   Here in the US most of my friends make this soup on a winter day.  When it’s cold outside, this soup is perfect to have in your house.  This is similar to the chicken noodles soup, however, it uses a different kind of noodles.  Instead of using the big thin noodles we use the rice noodles.

Chicken Sotanghon Soup is full of so many flavors.  There are different variation way to make this soup.  On this recipe I made, I use one whole chicken and just cut it into pieces.  I also use three boneless chicken breast that I cut into bite pieces for my husband.  Although my husband loves eating chicken that has the bone at this time I decided to add boneless one that way it’s easier for him to it later.

Milkfish Steak (Bistek na Bangus)

Milkfish Steak or also known as Bistek na Bangus is a very delicious dish that we love eating with rice.  Milkfish Steak is one thing that my husband loves to eat.  The first time I made him this dish he was in love, now I buy milkfish whenever I go to the Asian Market.  Milkfish can be bought in most of the Asian store.  Milkfish Steak or Bistek na Bangus is full of so many flavors.

The sauce of this dish is great over rice, it will definitely make you want to eat more.  In the Philippines, milkfish is a very popular fish since it’s our national fish.  Milkfish is also called as “bandeng” or “Bolu” in Indonesia.  And in some country in Asia, they called this fish a different name.  I remembered growing up my dad each time he comes home from he work.  He always has milkfish with him, and my mom either will fry it or cook it in our soup.  Read more

Chicken Sisig

Chicken sisig is very popular in the Philippines.  To make the sisig is not hard at all, it’s spicy but you can control how spicy you want it.  Chicken sisig is great to eat over rice or even using taco shells.  Originally the recipe called for pork, however, since my husband cannot eat anything with pork I choose to use chicken instead.  You can also use tuna on this recipe, or even beef.

I have to be honest, this is the first time I have ever made chicken sisig.  The result was amazing, my husband loves it a lot, he ate this with taco as a burrito.  And for me of course, I ate this with brown rice.  Chicken sisig is originally from Pampanga.  The original recipe called for pig head and liver.  However, most of the people nowadays they use the ears or pork belly.  This is seasoned with calamansi and chili peppers.

Since I don’t have any calamansi I just lemon juice.   I didn’t want this chicken sisig to be spicy, so my daughter can eat it.  I used some jalapeno peppers and some serrano peppers. You can add as many hot peppers as you, it all depends on how hot you want your sisig.  In the original recipe, they use the green chili peppers and red chili peppers.   However, since I didn’t have those available I just used whatever I have in my kitchen already.  Read more

Simple & Healthy Eating is a must in our house especially we have a busy schedule.  Not just the busy schedule we also have to watch what we eat because we want to maintain our health.  Since my husband got out the hospital about two weeks ago. He has been hungry a lot and has been craving for all sort of food.  Of course, these are food that I have cook for him before.
