Lusog Notes

This dish is rich in iron needed for the formation of red blood cells that helps carry oxygen all over the body. It is also high in niacin that promotes normal digestion and healthy skin.

Chef's Tip

After removing the chicken from the turbo broiler or oven, cover pan loosely with aluminum foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes. This step redistributes the juices which will make the chicken more moist.
