Sauteed Chayote in Chicken Stew

This is a very good Filipino dish. It is easy to make and tasty to eat. This dish has been contributed to me by my very nice friend Ms. Marissa Buhalog. She is hard working lady and loves to cook. Usually she cooks very simple and easy dishes but are very tasty. This dish she cooked is again very tasty and healthy.

This is how she described and made her dish.

Chayote as what Filipinos call sayote is a vegetables that belong to gourd family. Surprisingly this vegetables is good for the heart for its high source of folate,a vitamin B which help prevent homocystein and a source of potassium which help lower blood pressure.

Chayote is found mostly in Americas but Spanish people took it from Mexico and started growing in Philippines and not it is easily available in our part of the world. This vegetable I started to eat because of the way it can be used and also for the numerous health benefits it has. It can be easily cut and stewed with any kind of meat ( chicken, pork, prawn or lamb.) It can also be eaten as raw or semi cooked so the possibilities with this vegetable are endless. I love its crunchy flesh texture. I use it mostly in salads but it can also be fried. Though we eat this in many forms but the recipe I am going to share here is the most common way we eat in Philippines.
