Chicken in Mirinda.... does it sound weird???? Maybe, but it is a delicious dish. When you are tired of cooking the normal, chicken adobo, chicken afritada, chicken tinola, chicken what not ... you will like this for a change. Sometimes we get tired of eating the same kind of food over and over, we look for something that will excite our taste buds once in a while.
There are days when I just want to cook even if I'm not going to eat the dish I've prepared that day. It's nice to know when you are lazy, you can grab something from the fridge and nuke it.
Chicken in Mirinda
1 K. chicken, cut into serving pieces
2 pcs. calamansi
rock salt and pepper
500 ml Mirinda (or Royal)
1/4 C. cooking oil
1 knorr chicken cube
green beans, cut 1 inch long
1/2 bar Magnolia Quickmelt cheese, grated
Marinate chicken in salt, pepper and 1/4 C of the 500 ml Mirinda for 20 minutes. Roll in flour, shake off excess and fry slightly until light brown in color in cooking oil. Add the rest of the Mirinda. When it boils, add the chicken cube, carrots and potaotes, lower heat and simmer for about 25 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked. If it still has a lot of liquid, increase the heat, add the green beans. When you like the consistency of the sauce already, switch off and add the grated cheese. Toss lightly and serve.
