The best Filipino dishes are the ones that do not have a written recipe other than the knowledge passed on from generation to another. This is one is a great example and it is one of my all time favourite comfort food. Back in the Philippines, when I was still in university, I would always ask my Mom to make this for me every time I come home and visit during the holiday break. This recipe brings back a lot of happy memories and has been a great source of comfort whenever I feel homesick. I have adapted this recipe, again due to the lack of original ingredients. It calls for free-range chicken which has a lot more flavour to it and it can also stand the long cooking time required for this recipe. Use the pepper of your choice. (We used labuyo, or bird's eye chili originally, but I think jalapeno, serano or habanero are good candidates for substitute).
