While the chicken is cooking prepare the potatoes and carrots. When the chicken is tender, add the potatoes and carrots. Cook for about 10 minutes. While the carrots are cooking, prepare the bell peppers. Chop or slice them in roughly the same size as the carrots and potatoes. Refer to the photos of the chicken afritada for some guidance. Add the bell peppers and continue to simmer for another 5 minutes.
TIPS & TRICKS
*Use fish sauce if possible because it adds more flavor and makes it more authentic. To make sure it's good quality buy only the Thai or Vietnamese variety with no additives.
*The vegetables should be relatively the same size (but bigger cut than menudo style).
