Chicken with Sweet Peas (Chicken Guisantes)

My daughter likes her packed lunch done this way - everything on top, rice topped with the main dish. She does not eat sweet peas but loves potatoes. She wants the chicken (or any meat) cut into bite size already. And just like me, she does not want too much sauce. This is her packed lunch - chicken guisantes, just like how she wants it prepared.

Like ninety nine percent of posts here under "newbie cook" category, this is another first time - first time I cooked chicken guisantes. Usually on weekdays, I prepare next day's lunch the night before. Like what I always say, if there is a will, there is a way. And I really want to get better at cooking. I love to cook for my family.

Chicken guisantes was fairly easy. I just have to make sure I put in the potatoes and sweet peas at the right time so they won't get overcooked. Right timing, this is one of the things I need to master if I want my cooking to be a success.

I agree Cookie, looks like afritada. Fuss-free lunch and ganyan, we do our meat bite-size din, especially for baon.
