Lusog Notes

This Chicken Guisado recipe is high in protein which is important for growth, development and regulation of body processes. It is also a good source of niacin that helps maintain normal structure of the skin.

Chef`s Tip

Allow the patis and chicken juices to evaporate until almost dry to concentrate the flavors and remove the "lansa" in the chicken.
