About this special recipe:

I just observed that this recipe is very popular in birthday celebration among Filipinos. This is the most traditional way of celebrating birthdays and it should have a chicken soup in its dinner table.

To those that are not familiar with the Filipino culture. Every time someone celebrates his or her birthday, the family members will cook one chicken for the celebrant and put some blood from the chicken to the forehead of the birthday celebrant. The purpose of doing this is to protect the birthday celebrant from any evil spirits that will ruin his/her future. It is some sort of ritual as you might expect. Actually its not that weird, no long prayers, etc. Just simply putting a sign of cross in the forehead of the celebrant using chicken blood. That's it.

Filipino birthday














For best tasting results, I recommend buying a native chicken (those that are obtained in the wild or cultured in the wild/forestal area) as they have less fats, their meat taste good and their soup taste really fresh.
