TBC: I <3 Chicken – Chixstek

Filipino noun
1. Provisions
2. Packed lunch or snack
This is part trois of the I ❤ Chicken Recipe series. Bistek is the filipino version of beef steak. It is thinly sliced beef marinated and cooked in soy sauce and calamansi juice. Usually caramelized onion rings are added to the dish.
For my recipe I used chicken breast instead of beef and I added cream to neutralize the saltiness of the soy sauce.
1/2 kg boneless and skinless Chicken breast (cut into chunks)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup calamansi juice
1/4 cup all purpose cream
2 cups water
1 tsp of iodized salt
1 tsp canola oil
1 medium size onion (sliced)
1 tsp ground black pepper
  1. In a rondeau/brasier, heat two cups of water until it boils.  Add the chicken and 1 tsp of salt.  Turn the fire to medium and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Set aside chicken.  Heat canola oil and saute onion until it caramelizes.
  3. Add chicken, soy sauce and calamansi juice. Simmer for 5 minutes
  4. Add all purpose cream and simmer for 3 minutes.  Add pepper and simmer for another 2 minutes.
  5. Serve. Perfect with bread with a side of steamed vegetables.
