Lusog Notes

This Chicken Pochero dish provides vitamin A that helps improve vision and keeps the immune system healthy. It also has niacin that helps enzymes work properly in your body.

Chef's Tip

Separate the stalks and leaves of the pechay. The stalks will cook longer than the leaves. Add the stalks first. When cooked, add the leaves and let the residual heat cook the leaves.
