Preparing the Ingredients

For this recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 cup diced bell peppers
  • 4 tablespoons fish sauce

Cooking the Chicken

2. Add the minced garlic and onion and cook until softened, about 2 minutes.
3. Add the ground chicken and cook for 7-8 minutes, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon as it cooks.
4. Once the chicken is almost cooked through, add the bell peppers. Continue to cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
5. Add the fish sauce, soy sauce, calamansi juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Add a little more canola oil as needed, so that the chicken doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.

7. Taste and adjust the seasoning as desired.
8. Serve the chicken on its own, or over steamed white rice or quinoa. Garnish with calamansi wedges or lemon wedges.
