Bicol express is usually a pork recipe with shrimp paste and lots of long green chili peppers. Well, guess what? You can enjoy this with chicken, too! Let's make bicol express a halal food, shall we?

Cooking bicol express is a very easy recipe. What's difficult is really the prepping, especially if you want this dish not to be too spicy. De-seeding the peppers does take the most of my time. Bicol express is exactly the same when cooking it with chicken. Since chicken meats quick faster than pork, cook time will be shorter by just a few minutes, too. Generally, the technique and ingredients are quite alike.
