Lusog Notes

This Chicken Kare-Kare dish is high in vitamin B1 and niacin. Vitamin B1 helps the body convert food to energy while niacin promotes healthy skin and normal digestion.

Chef's Tip

Chicken thigh fillet is high in fat which will melt while frying. Remove excess oil after frying so the sauce will not be greasy.
