…one ordinary day when i craved for something truly Pinoy tasting like Chicken Afritada and did not exactly have all the required ingredients. the twist? i used a can of Minestrone in lieu of potatoes and olives. i only had to remove the pasta that’s inside the can and voila! Afritada to the bones! hee! even the beans made the stew¬† better with that unexpected starchy texture and taste.¬† i can aptly say that this can also be called Chicken Minestrone meets Chicken and Beans Afritada, whateva! haha!
