Lusog Notes

This recipe provides protein needed for growth, development, and repair of body tissues, and niacin that helps break down carbohydrates, protein and fats in the body.

Chef's Tip

Quickly sauté the chicken over a hot pan so that it sears quickly. If the pan is not hot, the chicken will release its juices and will not brown properly.
