Chicken Afritada

Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.

Good morning.  Had a quiet day at home yesterday. It rained and rained and then rained some more. Hubby ran out to the store and came back looking like a drowned rat.   Put my loungers on and did a lot of reading and going through my WW recipe books.  They have some great recipes.  The following recipe I got from my Philippines Cookbook.  Got it for free on my Kindle.  Love those free books.

Chicken (I bought chicken legs, already chopped for a Spanish stew)
2 potatoes quartered
Baby carrots (a handful.  Hubby don't like them so I put enough for me only)
red and green pepper, chopped
1 medium white onion, chopped
frozen peas
4 gloves garlic, minced
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 1/4 cup water
Low sodium soy sauce
Juice of 3 limes
3 tbsp cooking oil 

Marinate chicken for at least 30 minutes in soy sauce and lime juice. Heat cooking oil in a pan  and saute garlic, onion, and pepper until softened.  Add chicken and brown on all sides.  Add diced tomatoes, leftover marinade, carrots and water.  Bring to boil and simmer. Add potatoes and peas.  Simmer until done.

Serve with hot steamed rice and enjoy,
