Chicken Salpicao recipe

So the other day, three things happened: I had a pack of chicken breast, fresh brown mushrooms and not enough time to make something really elaborate for lunch. Thus, Chicken and Mushroom Salpicao happened.

This is the second of the three salpicao recipes I am aiming to post in the blog. It looks like Beef Salpicao will be at the tail end of this series albeit being the most popular variation. This was unintentional of course. When I think of making something for the blog, I always go with whatever ingredient is at hand.

Savory and buttery Salpicao–Basic Ingredients

Much like Salmon Salpicao, this recipe uses the simplest ingredients that create really flavorful dishes.

  • Liquid Seasoning – I used a liquid seasoning this time around instead of my ever favorite Worcestershire sauce. It’s nice to change things up once in a while. I used Knorr liquid seasoning but if you want an MSG-free type, use Bragg’s.
  • Soy sauce – it is not a stir-fry without soy sauce. Use light soy sauce or low sodium if preferred.
  • Butter – lots of it if you must! It goes so well with the chicken and savoriness of the sauce.
  • Garlic – lots of it too! Stir-fry them until lightly brown (not burned). Scoop out half of it before adding the chicken and use as garnish.

Chicken and Mushroom Stir-fry: The Basics

Cut the chicken and mushroom in uniform pieces bite-sized pieces before cooking. This ensures that they cook quickly and evenly.

Add the mushrooms when the chicken is half-way done. Adding them too early can make it soggy and watery.

Finally, pour the salpicao sauce. Stir-fry until chicken and mushrooms are coated with the sauce. Turn off the heat and sprinkle with toasted garlic bits to garnish.

Serve over warm rice or eat on its own as ‘pulutan‘ or beer match. Enjoy!
