After cooking the Filipino Chicken Adobo, I told myself I have to try other Filipino dishes.  I started to search for some easy dishes and this Chicken Asado was one of them that looks delicious.
According to Panlasang Pinoy, 'Chicken Asado is a Filipino chicken recipe where chicken is pan-fried and cooked in a tomato based sauce along with soy sauce and lemon juice. Chicken Asado is said to originate from Central Luzon, in Pampanga'.

My hubby asked to cook curry chicken for my mother in-law, but I prepared this for her, a new dish I believe she has not tried before.  I think she will like this because she loves  almost all dishes that taste savoury and sourish.
Recipe adapted from Panlasang Pinoy with modifications
[serves 4-5]
2 large chicken whole legs [with skin] - cut into chunky pieces
1 large onion - peeled and diced
some bay leaves
3 medium size potatoes - peeled and cut wedges
1 tbsp butter
30 ml lemon juice
1 tbsp oil
2 tbsp light soy sauce
5-6 tbsp tomato sauce
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp salt to taste
200 ml water
  1. Marinate chicken pieces with some salt and pepper for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat up a non-stick wok, pan fry chicken pieces [skin side] first until brown, flip over to fry the meat side.  Dish up.
  3. Using the same wok, pan fry the potato wedges until brown.  Push aside, add in butter and saute diced onions and bay leaves until onions are soft.
  4. Stir to mix ingredients well, add in fried chicken, lemon juice and seasoning.
  5. Stir to mix, pour in water, bring to boil, then cover wok and simmer until ingredients are tender and cooked through.
  6. Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking.  Uncover and cook till sauce is thick.
  7. Dish up and serve hot.
