Chicken Afritada is a Filipino dish. Chicken meat is cooked with common ingredients like tomato sauce, along with carrots, potatoes, and bell peppers. In this Chicken Afritada recipe version, sprite was added to bring more aromas and it helped make the dish more appetizing visually. I recommend this recipe to everyone because the procedure is simple and easy.
