Chicken Kare-kare

Kare kare is a popular Filipino dish made with ox tail and tripe but today I tried it with chicken and it's also very yummy. Try this and let me know what is your opinion.

Ingredients for 8-10 servings:
1 kilo chicken (cut to your desired size)
2 cups water ( add if needed)
2 eggplant
1/4 kilo string beans or Baguio Beans
1 bunch pechay or Chinese cabbage
1/2 cup ground peanut or peanut butter (add if needed)
1 onion
3 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon atsuete powder ( add if needed)
salt and pepper to taste
Some shrimp paste for dipping sauce ( sawsawan)

1. Saute the garlic and onion until brownish then add the atsuete powder, continue to saute for 30 seconds then add the chicken and simmer until pinkish color of the meat is gone.
2. Add water and bring to a boil, when boiling reduce the heat and continue to simmer until the chicken is cooked.
3. Add the peanut butter,eggplant and beans then simmer until half cooked,then add the Chinese cabbage, salt and pepper to taste and simmer until done.

4. Serve it hot with shrimp paste for dipping.
