I’m a couch potato and cooking is not my thing. But not until my Chef Sister shared an easy–to-cook meal, which I think is doable.
My little sister’s a foodie since we were kids. Her experience in Ritz Carlton Florida has brought her many experiences and learned new dishes that she could tweak to adjust to every Filipino’s taste. So, recently she shared this awesome and easy dish just by experimenting.
She calls it, “Pan Seared Chicken in Cream Sauce with Sweet Corn Kernels and Green Peas” using ingredients found in our nearest supermarket or even sari-sari stores. Thank God, right? Don’t you just hate those recipes found online that features ingredients that can’t be found here in the Philippines, especially sa mga suki nating tindahan?
Well, anyways, go wear your apron and let’s start cooking!
