Christmas is the most celebrated occasion in the Philippines. On Christmas Eve, families gather together to partake of a sumptuous Noche Buena on Christmas Eve. So the food has to be special. To make the celebration more special for my family, I have come up with a recipe that makes use of UFC Spices and condiments to level up my cooking skills. It is a chicken recipe, to which I created not just any sauce but a complex one that combines chicken drippings with butter and UFC Sweet Chili Sauce. The result: a delicious meal fit for a special occasion such as Christmas.
