Manok sa Pickles (Chicken w/ Sweet Pickles)

This chicken dish is a local recipè of my hometown Biñan, now a busy city. I learn this recipè from my Mommy Bing. I got my passion in cooking from her and I must say she’s one of my cooking heroes. This dish was never absent in every Fiesta celebration, our patron saint San Vicente Ferrer celebrates a feast every 5th of April.
You’ll gonna like the creamy sweet tangy taste of this dish and its so easy to prepare and cook.

    • I believe everybody needs now is easy cooking for all of us now are multi-tasking. If ever you could not find RAM brand, any brand of pickled gerkins will do just fine. Right now, i’m onboard a ship trading on north european countries and I’m always using a local brand of pickled gerkins. Just dont add the juice of the pickled gerkins, stick with the pineapple juice. Thanks for reading my post 🙂 Enjoy your meal 😉
