Caldereta - Spicy Stew

Looking for a different way to cook chicken aside from the usual adobo and tinola, hubby and I decided to make caldereta of what we had in the fridge.

What you need:

1K of chicken breast (fillet cut into cubes)
2 medium potatoes, cut into chunky cubes
1 medium carrot, cut into chunky cubes
1 red bell pepper, sliced thinly
1 small can of liver spread
1 medium pouch tomato sauce
2 cups of water
1/4K green peas
3 pieces cayenne pepper chopped finely (more if you want it to be extra spicy)
1/2 block of regular cheese, grated
1 medium onion minced
3 cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste

What to do:

Pre-fry potatoes and carrots in oil
Saute onion and garlic in 3 tablespoons of oil until the onion is cooked, add the chicken
Once the chicken is cooked, add water and let it boil
After the water has boiled, get 1/2 cup and dissolve liver spread in it
Add the tomato sauce and chili pepper to the boiling sauce, lower the heat and simmer
After a minute, add the liver spread and water mixture, potatoes and carrots, simmer for 3 minutes
Then add the peas, bell pepper and grated cheese
Put salt and pepper to taste
Simmer until cheese melts and sauce thickens.

Serve with hot rice and enjoy
