Lusog Notes

This Chunky Pininyahang Manok dish is high in protein that supports growth and development. It is also a source of vitamin B2 and niacin. Vitamin B2 helps in the production of red blood cells and niacin supports the nervous system.

Chef's Tip

Milk curdles when heated at a high temperature. Be sure to add the milk when the chicken is fully cooked so that there is no need to boil the milk. This helps keep the sauce smooth and curdle-free.
