Zesty Chicken and Potatoes


Sam’s yaya Lisa has been in the thick of watching cooking shows lately. She tells me how much she wants to learn the art of cooking someday. That, to me, is a great start.

The other night, she made this– zesty chicken with potatoes. I love, love, love the mouthwatering blend of asian soy and calamansi! And, I want lots! haaay, you can NEVER have enough of this once you start biting into it.

Anyway, here goes yaya Lisa’s recipe—

Zesty Chicken With Potatoes

2 pcs whole chicken breasts, halved

5 pcs calamansi, juiced

3/4 cup soy sauce

3 medium-sized potatoes, cut into sticks

salt and pepper to taste

canola oil


1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Marinate in soy sauce and calamansi for a good 30 minutes to two hours. The longer it gets soaked, the better.

2. Fry the chicken. Once cooked, add the remaining marinade. Make sure you achieve the ‘agaw mantika and soy sauce’ effect.

3. In a separate pan, fry potatoes.

4. Mix chicken and potatoes together. Serve.

  1. hi sis! i love your blog..i just found it & this dish is the easiest & i have all the ingredients needed so i tried it, but the sauce became very salty, i used regular soy sauce, maybe next time, i’ll use light soy sauce instead…next on my list is the parsley pesto 😉 thanks!
