My hubby is a Visayan (Cebuano) that is why he chose the cyber name Pastilan to represent him. "Pastilan" is a Cebuano expression that could mean anything from exasperation, to endearment, to empathy. I am not a visayan so I cannot really explain completely the deeper meaning of the term. Anyway, it is not the reason why I have this post. I want ot show you some Visayan recipe. This is the Visayan version of chicken curry. Here's how to do it :

You will need ...

1 whole chicken(cut into serving portions)
2 tbsp. curry powder
3 tbsp. cooking oil
6 cloves garlic (minced)
1 large onion (sliced)
3 bigl tomatoes  (sliced)
red hot chilli peppers 
2 Chicken Broth Cubes (any brand will do)
3 cups coconut milk
2 big potatoes (peeled and quartered)

Here's how...

1.Marinate chicken in curry powder for about 10 min.

2.Heat oil and saute garlic, onions and tomatoes. Add the chicken broth cubes and marinated chicken. Cook until chicken turns slightly brown. Add the red hot chilli peppers

3.Pour coconut milk and simmer until chicken is tender. Add potatoes and continue cooking until fork-tender. Serve hot with rice and a choice of condiments like chutney, mashed boiled egg, fried saba bananas and raisins.
