"Chicken Bistek"

At around 11 am, my kiddo got home from school. We, my hubby and I, didn't noticed the time, it's almost lunch. We were talking about Davao, if we're going there this summer or not. We're discussing the budget for that and the schedule. We're also checking the airfare. If ever, we're going .... it will be the first family out of town vacation. Back to my kid, lunch wasn't ready yet. In short, I needed to cook something fast! (",)

Good for 3 servings.

You'll need:
  • 1/2 of a chicken, about 600 grams, cut into small serving pcs.
  • 3 pcs kalamansi
  • 3 tbsps of soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup of cooking oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 pcs (150 grams) white onion, cut into rings and separated
  • 1/2 cup water

Here's how:

In a bowl, put the chicken. Squeeze the kalamansi over the chicken. Disregard the seeds. Sprinkle the ground pepper. Add the soy sauce. Mix until chicken is well-coated with the marinade. Let it stand for a few minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the other ingredients.

In a wok, over medium-high fire, heat through. Pour half of the cooking oil. Saute the garlic until golden brown. Add the onion. Stir-fry until half done only. Remove from pan. Set aside.

Back to the wok, add the rest of the cooking oil. Put the chicken, reserve the marinade. Stir-fry until it changes color about 3-5 minutes. Pour the marinade. Let it boil. Keep boiling until half of the liquid has evaporated.

Add water. Bring to boil with the lid on. Reduce fire to low and let it simmer for 12 minutes. Put the cooked garlic and onion. Mix. Cook for another 2 minutes.

Serve with cooked rice.
