  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1/2 cup onion, red, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 kg chicken, thigh and leg, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 2 pc siling labuyo, minced
  • 2 Tbsp liver spread
  • 1/2 tsp pepper, black
  • 1 cup potato, cut into chunks then fried
  • 1/2 cup bell pepper, red, sliced into 1-inch diamonds
  • 1/2 cup bell pepper, green, sliced into 1-inch diamonds
  • 1/4 cup black olives, pitted, sliced (optional)


1. Sauté onions until translucent. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant.
2. Add the chicken and sauté until lightly browned. Add the soy sauce. Cook until almost dry, scraping the bottom of the pan to release the browned bits on the bottom of the pot.

Lusog Notes

This Sweet and Spicy Chicken Caldereta recipe is rich in protein and vitamin A. Protein is necessary for growth and development, while vitamin A helps form and maintain healthy skin, skeletal and soft tissues.

Chef's Tip

Pour off the excess oil from the pot before adding the water and the other liquid ingredients. This step will prevent the sauce from becoming too greasy.
