Menudo, also called ginamay, is a classic Filipino stew that is traditionally made with pork, pork liver, vegetables, raisins, and tomato sauce. In my recipe, I used chicken and chicken heart in order to create a healthier version of this famous dish. You may also try including chicken liver, but be sure to cook it properly to prevent it from getting mushy. Enjoy one of the most flavorful chicken recipes you may ever try!

        Hello, Dread Cuan, this is a very delicious meal. With so many natural organic items from the garden, there is no doubt that the finished product is a well-balanced diet. Don't you agree? I like the inclusion of potatoes in the cooking pot. Thanks for sharing.

        Hello Liz,

        Garbanzos are also called chickpeas in English. It's a kind of beans commonly used in North America. I hope that information helps! Thank you for dropping by.

        This looks like a tasty dish. What are garbanzos? I am not familiar with this ingredient.
