Chicken Caldereta

Caldereta is a Spanish word for stew while the Filipinos term for stew is nilaga or sinigang. As what I have said there is no right or wrong in cooking because there are so many ways to cook a recipe, I think nilaga or sinigang is the original Filipino way of stewing, plain and simple, because stewing in Spain and other countries include a tomato sauce, that makes the Filipino caldereta delicious because this dish is a combination of Spanish and Filipino stewing. Caldereta was adapted from Spanish during the time when they colonized the Philippines. 
In our family gatherings, caldereta is always a special treat, I can not say that my caldereta is perfect but I think it is good enough to share with you. :-) This is just a simple one, I will share the special , soon, God willing :)
