Papa’s Chicken in Tomato Sauce Recipe

Blessed Sunday, Lounger! And Happy Father’s Day to all dads in the world!

I hope you’re having an awesome day! Today, I’m sharing with you my father’s simple yet tasty Chicken in Tomato Sauce recipe. Unfortunately, I’m currently away from home for about seven months now, so I missed him so well. But, thanks to the technology today, we can send and receive messages and occasionally have some video calls to catch up.

There are many exciting benefits when consuming tomatoes regularly. An article suggested ten benefits we can gain from tomatoes. My favorite is it’s good for skin and hair because of the lycopene content. Also, tomatoes are a good source of anti-oxidant for our bodies.

It’s an easy recipe. You’ll surely like it!

  1. Use low-medium fire, heat the pan, and then add your olive oil.
  2. On it, sauté the onion. Once translucent, add the garlic and continue sautéing.
  3. Next, add the chicken meat, and we want to kind of sear it.
  4. Add the bay leaves, and continue sautéing.
  5. Next, add the tomato paste and a little bit of water.
  6. Next, add carrots and Potato and let them cook, cover if needed.
  7. Occasionally check and mix, season with chili flakes, salt & pepper, and brown sugar to balance the flavors.
  8. Finally, add green capsicum and let it cook. Occasionally, give a good mix.
  9. Do a taste test, so you can adjust and season with salt and pepper if needed.
  10. Serve it hot with white or brown rice.

Masarap! Delicious! Svaadisht! Oishi! 

Quick Tips:

  • I preferred using a bigger pan. So, I used our old bigger pan in cooking. You’ll see it in the video. Lol. It’s easier to give a good mix.
  • You may also add a little bit of chili powder if you prefer it spicier. But in this recipe, I didn’t count chili powder because my Chilli flakes were already spicy. So, we only want to add a little bit of heat and spice in there.
  • Better to skin off the chicken to avoid unwanted fats from the skin.
  • Another optional ingredient is butter.
  • Regarding the water content, make sure not to add too much. Control it so it won’t be a watery taste. The water won’t overpower the tomato paste.
