Creamy Chicken Halang-Halang

You may have heard of the term “halang” before, especially when you’ve been to any of the Visayan-speaking regions in the country. Halang-Halang, derived from the word meaning “spicy hot”, is a sought-after dish in the Visayas and Mindanao. It uses different types of chilies, such as siling espada or finger chili and siling labuyo or bird’s eye chili, as one of the main ingredients. It is a great dish that you can serve at home with no muss and no fuss, and it works well as pulutan, too!

Without further ado, here’s my very own rendition of the well-renowned Chicken Halang-Halang made creamy with Jolly Coconut Cream.
