Filipino chicken stew or Chicken Kaldereta is most Filipino family’s favorite viand. Fried and stewed in tomato sauce. It is also served usually during parties and festive occasions. This rich and flavorful dish is best partnered with rice. The dish has a rich and thick sauce that is similar to Mechado - another tomato based stew.

Making chicken Kaldereta is easy, You can add or alter ingredients to add different flavors. In this dish, I have deleted the liver spread and used only cheddar cheese, For marination, i used the lime juice instead of Pineapple juice.

Marinating the chicken for few hours will add more flavor to the dish
