Chicken with Pickles (Manok sa Pickles)

Mom brought out the chicken from the ref and asked me to cook tinola. But we just ate tinola 2 days ago! I asked her if we have pickle relish in the ref, she said yes..."OK teach me how to cook manok sa pickles!" 

It's official, I can now add this to my "I know how to cook that" list! heheheh!

It's like cooking pineapple chicken, but instead of using pineapple, we used pickles (of course!)

Best serve with hot rice! Here's the recipe.

Serves four.

1/2 kilo chicken
50g sweet pickle relish (yes, I weighed it!)
1 medium sized onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
half of a carrot, chopped (optional)
fish sauce / patis (adjust according to taste)
small amount of oil

1. Heat oil, saute onion and garlic. Add carrot, chicken meat. Season with fish sauce and pepper.
2. Add the pickles. Stir fry for about 3 minutes. The meat will absorb the flavor of the pickles.
3. Add a cup of water, and then simmer until the meat is tender and the sauce is reduced to half. 
4. You can adjust the saltiness according to your taste by adding fish sauce or salt.

Bon Appetit!
