Lusog Notes

This recipe is high in vitamin A that promotes normal growth and development and protects one from infections. It is also a source of iron needed in the formation of red blood cells that distribute oxygen to the rest of the body.

Chef's Tip

Marinating the chicken in tomato sauce gives it a nice brown color after roasting and also helps tenderize the meat.
