Join Melissa Miranda as she makes Chicken Afritada. This tomato-based Filipino stew marries hearty vegetables, peas, and olives with tender chicken thighs. To amplify the flavors and keep the chicken skin crispy, Melissa roasts the chicken separately from the veg, reuniting them just before plating.

INGREDIENTS
For the chicken:
1 carrot, finely chopped
1 celery stalk, finely chopped
½ large yellow onion, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
5 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
2 Tbsp. olive oil
4-6 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs (about 2 lb.)
1 cup chicken stock
1 14.5-oz. can diced tomatoes
3 bay leaves
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. fish sauce
Johnny’s seasoning salt

For the roasted vegetables:
4 small carrots, roll cut
8 oz. heirloom potatoes, quartered
2 medium red bell pepper, seeded, cut into bite size pieces
½ cup olive oil
Johnny’s seasoning salt

To finish:
½ cup frozen green peas
¼ cup Castelvetrano olives, pitted
¼ cup Kalamata olives, pitted

Chicken + Sauce Prep
- Preheat oven to 425.
- Heat olive oil in a large deep sided skillet until hot. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper then brown the chicken skin side down for 5-7 minutes until golden. Turn the chicken around and brown on the other side for 2 minutes then remove and set aside on a plate.
- Add the finely chopped carrot, celery, onion and red bell pepper and saute until soft but not browned around 5 minutes.
- Once soft, add the garlic and bay and saute for another 2 minutes.
- Add the tomatoes and stock, fish sauce and soy sauce and stir everything together. Taste to see if you need to add more salt and pepper. Finally, add the chicken back to the skillet and place in the oven. Bake for 45 min.
- Take out and add olives and green peas and roasted veggies. If you want to reduce the sauce, take out chicken and put back on the stove.
- Skin should be crispy and delicious.
Roasting Veggies
- Place your potatoes and carrots in a large bowl and toss with vegetable and salt and pepper and place on a baking sheet tray and place in the oven to roast. (20 min) - Toss your red bell pepper in vegetable oil and place on another baking sheet try and place in oven to roast (10 min)

This is exactly what I used when I attempted to recreate an AMERICAN chicken ceaser salad here in ITALY 4:12 'COLATURA Di ALICI' to substitute the Worcestershire sauce and anchovy paste/fillets I didn't have + to make the dressing more smooth, thanks to my aunt for finding it in her kitchen cupboard I've learnt about it's existence. You can use it with pasta, vegetables, meat and added to soups/ broths

@Ryan Smith Yes, they even use Sprite too (when roasting a chicken). They use sodas/softdrinks as a substitute for wine or sugar. I've seen my uncle use this kind of ingredients when he cooks, but I'm not a fan of it. but it's not that bad.

Finally someone who seasons and tosses vegetables before placing it on the pan. It always feels off for me when chefs place whatever needs roasting directly on the pan and seasons it there before placing it on the pan.

totally not your traditional afritada, Ive always found this dish bland and confused with the amount of stuff that goes into it, I guess cooking the vegetables separately would fix that problem....still I think I would much prefer to make chicken cacciatore
