Festive Sotanghon Guisado With Chicken
Preparing a delectable feast during fiesta season is integral to Filipino culture. For many, it is a chance to give thanks for a bountiful harvest and the blessings of the past year. It is also the time to invite guests and make them try new recipes you’ve discovered. Want to introduce something new to the typical handaan spread of caldereta, pork barbecue, and lumpiang Shanghai? Skip the canton and bihon this year and go for an equally delicious yet more pocket-friendly sotanghon guisado!
Like most noodle recipes, sotanghon guisado is easy to follow and calls for pantry staples only. If you’re preparing the dish for the first time, follow this guide for party success.
