I had Afritada some two weeks ago in a potluck party, It's good to have Filipino dishes once in a while here.

That chicken dish looks delicious, all I can say is I wish I were eating in your house.

I will give the recipe a go one of these days, Chicken is my favourite meat and I'm always on the look out for a tasty dish to make. Hopefully it will taste half as good as your one looks!
