chicken 1

I received the chicken products yesterday and I cooked the whole chicken for tonight’s dinner. I was thinking of Chicken Curry or Chicken Asado, but later on decided to go for Chicken Adobo sa Gata (Chicken in Coconut Milk). For the chicken breast fillet, I’m still thinking if I’m gonna make Chicken Marsala or Chicken Kiev. That would be for the next post, though.

Chicken Adobo sa Gata


  • 1 1/2 lb. chicken, cut into pieces
  • 500g pork, cubed
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 3-4 stalks lemon grass
  • 2 tbsps. julienned turmeric
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 2 tsps. fish sauce or patis
  • 800 ml coconut milk, or milk extracted from 2 coconuts
  • 3 pieces chili
  • salt to taste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • freshly ground pepper


  1. In a wok, saute garlic, onion, ginger and lemon grass in oil, add the fish sauce.
  2. Add the pork pieces first, when the pork slices are tender, add the chicken, vinegar and freshly ground black pepper. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until the vinegar is completely absorbed by the chicken pieces. Season with salt.
  3. Add coconut milk. Stir constantly in the first 10 minutes to avoid curdling of the coconut milk. Then you can cover it and let it simmer for 20 minutes or until the coconut milk is half absorbed.
  4. Enjoy it with steamed rice.

The whole chicken was plump and meaty; and the meat was very tender and tasty. It is not my first time to try Bounty Fresh. I just opted for the cheaper brand because I wanted to work on stretching my budget. But come to think of it, I would be saving money too if I choose to buy Bounty Fresh. How? They only use young chicken, so they are definitely tender. You save from cooking gas because the chicken cooks faster. If you check on the prices in the grocery stores, there is a price difference of Php 7.00 from other brands. You probably would be spending more than that if you have to cook the chicken from another brand longer.

So, would I buy Bounty Fresh? My answer is YES. Not only because their chicken is young and tender but because I learned that the feeds they give to the chickens are delivered fresh and safe for chicken consumption. The farms are well-ventilated and the environment is also controlled (not too hot and not too cold) to make the chicks grow at a healthy rate, and at the same time prevent sicknesses like the ones seen on the MyBiosource page. Even farm personnel who provide feeds and water need to take showers before entering the farm houses to make sure that the growing environment of the chicks is always kept clean and biosecure.

Fully grown chicken are brought to Bounty Fresh’s Triple-A Processing Plant that is certified by the National Meat Inspection commission for processing. The chicken undergo a thorough inspection process under the plant’s bio-security measures to make sure that they are disease-free and also free of foreign materials before leaving the plant. As you can see in the photo above, the chicken products are vacuum-sealed to keep the natural flavors and juices in, keep bacteria out and prolong the product’s refrigerated shelf life.
