Spicy Chicken Binagoongan Recipe

The Filipino cuisine is absolutely magical. There are a lot of recipes that other people are not much a fan of or honestly just not familiar with, but once they got a taste of, then will they start appreciating them. The dishes we are talking about often times have ingredients that are more commonly used by Filipinos hence other people, such as tourists, take time to get the heads wrapped around it – like Paklay or Pork Igado. Those two dishes we have mentioned are often faced with unfamiliarity and that is because the main ingredients used in making those are either innards or liver which is an acquired taste but don’t say pass on either of these two when you get the chance, because we promise you, you are going to love it.

With that, we got another dish for you that is often times judged for its scent as it has a condiment that Filipinos absolutely love even though other people find its smell off-putting. Bagoong is a popular condiment here in the Philippines that is made of fermented fish, krill, or shrimp paste. It is undeniably salty but it offers more complex salty tones than a salt could provide. Besides that, it is also pungent so it could also provide a kick while giving the whole dish that distinct yet delicious umami flavor that other condiments could not.

Bagoong has so many roles in the kitchen – the trick to using it in your dish is to not overdo it as a small amount of it could go a long way already. That’s how flavorful this is! Bagoong can be used as condiment to pair the ever loved Filipino dish, Kare-Kare, or as a dip or topping to make the well-loved fruit snack, Indian Mango, even yummier. Truly, the joys that Bagoong could offer know no bounds. Other than those, of course, Bagoong is also recognized as a vital base flavor in Binagoongang dishes such as Chicken Binagoongan which is what we will be making for you today, but make it spicy!

Chicken Binagoongan is just one of the many binagoong-based Filipino dishes that is so easy to love! Indeed, each spoonful of this dish is packed with lots of flavor – all thanks to bagoong alamang or shrimp paste. On top of that, this dish is perfect for when you want to tone it down with consuming red meat but also want to be able to enjoy a tasty Filipino classic that would have you reaching for more heaps of freshly steamed rice!

Made with mainly chicken and bagoong alamang alongside tomatoes, garlic, onion, pepper corns, chilis, and veggies like sigarilyas or eggplant, if you prefer that, Chicken Binagoongan is no doubt a mouthwatering and appetite-satisfying dish! Absolutely delish in every bite so we suggest you make yourself some for today. Just follow our recipe on Spicy Chicken Binagoongan below. Enjoy!
