Chicken Pacham

Dad surprised us with a new dish. He said he used to cook
this for his friends when he was still a bachelor. This is their
favorite pulutan (any food that accompanies an alcohol drink
during drinking sessions).

He doesn't have a name for this dish. He just calls it
"Pacham" a slang for Filipino term tsamba which means
fluke or chance.

Chicken "Pacham"

1/4 k chicken breast, sliced
1/4 k chicken gizzard, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2T Oyster Sauce
1/4 k string beans, cut into half
1/2 cup potatoes, diced
1 bell pepper, sliced
2Tbsp cooking oil
1/2 cup water
salt and pepper

Saute garlic until golden brown. Add onions and cook
until translucent. Stir in chicken breast and gizzards.
Stir fry until chicken changes in color. Add Oyster sauce
and stir fry for a minute. Add water and bring to a boil.
Add potatoes, bell pepper and beans. Cover until the veggies
are cooked. Add water if necessary. Season with salt
and pepper before removing from heat.
