Chicken Menudo

With all the unhealthy eating habits we were seem to be back to the last couple of months (because it was unavoidable). It’s high time we go back to healthy eating. I proposed we avoid eating red meat again or lessen it as much as possible. Well, I mostly proposed that to myself because if I tell that to the fam, then I would hear some objections, complaints, and whining noises. Well, since I am the designated cook, I decided to make mostly chicken and fish dishes starting today. I figured that if it’s delicious and it’s on the table, and they’re already hungry, they would eat it anyway. It wouldn’t matter if it’s not made of pork or beef.

And so I made Chicken Menudo — for the first time ever!

But before this Chicken Menudo was Sunday’s Mega lunch at Soban K-Town.


Sis, Rome, and peanutbutter wanted some Samgyupsal… so when they saw Soban last Sunday, their minds were set. They were also sold to this Group set meal that’s worth ₱2,000. We were told it was a meal set that’s good for 3-4 persons but when it was served, I though it was good for 6-7! There were a lot of food included in the set meal that we were so full after.


Ykaie and peanutbutter also tried Arrowland by Gandiva. Ykaie wanted to try it for the longest time but we always can’t find the time to do so. We had all the time in the world yesterday — and these two enjoyed being an archer. Looks like we are going back for rounds of arrows.


Pork Menudo is a really popular Filipino dish. It’s one of those dishes that’s most awaited on the table whenever there’s a special occasion. My mother makes a really mean menudo back when she didn’t have Alzheimer’s Disease. It’s was unforgettable. But because we are trying to eat healthy, I am letting go of our usual pork version and used chicken breast this time.

To tell you honestly, using chicken breast didn’t make any difference except that it doesn’t have fat. It didn’t change the flavor and the taste though. This dish still came out flavorful.Still so good with rice or pandesal.

This is absolutely the answer to your menudo cravings when you’re trying to avoid red meat…

    1. Hi Alenuy,

      Yes, I think it will, a little. But if you don’t like liver then, of course, you can choose not to add liver. I’m sure you’ll like it better.

  1. A different menudo from what I’m use to. Here in New Mexico menudo is made with tripe (beef stomach). I’ve never been a fan, so I’m quite interested in your version of it. It looks like a dish we’d love in this house. Thanks for something different!

    1. This kind of menudo is what I like mommy peach..Kasi mas healthy at napakamura pa kesa sa pork..Saka di din kami mahilig sa pork..

  2. Looks delicious. I haven’t heard of the name yet but surely a very healthy and delicious recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ay bongga nito mommy. Ang sarap sarap nito. Isa sa favorite ko na ulam.

  4. This is one of my fave Mommy Peach. Minsanan lang din kasi makakakain nito, every may okasyon lang. Kaya everytime may ganitong handa, takam na takam ako. ???
