Malusog, Masustansya, at Kayang-Kaya Magnolia Recipe: Bourbon ChickenPasta

Hello again! Since I'm in the mood for cooking and sharing to you my chicken recipes. Here is another Malusog, Masustansya at Kayang-Kaya ( hearty, healthy and easy to do) chicken meal I somehow invented- My Magnolia Bourbon Chicken Pasta!

So for the Ingredients:
1.  3 tbsp chopped Parsley
2.  1tsp lemon zest
3. ½ cup chopped scallions
4. 2 cups chopped onion
5. 2 tbsp Lemon juice
6. 1 whole garlic bulb chopped
7. ½ cup butter

8. 4 to 6 tablespoons Bourbon whiskey (You may use any type of whiskey if bourbon is unavailable.)
9. 1 tablespoon sugar, or more
10.1 teaspoon ground black pepper
11. 2 tbsp Tomato Ketchup
12. 2 tsp. Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
13. 2 tsp Garlic Powder

14. 2 tbsp Olive oil

15. 3 cups of Chicken Stock

16. 2 tbsp Magnolia All purpose flour
17. Magnolia Nutri-Oil Cooking Oil
18. Purefoods Crispy Fried Chicken
19. Magnolia Quickmelt
20. Pre-cooked Choice of Pasta. ( Mine, I like Angel Hair Pasta. You can use spaghetti or fettuccine too)


1. Put chicken in a bowl. Add Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

2. You have now the option to cook your chicken either fried or in a turbo broiler. Mine, I cook my Chicken by Frying in a fryer. Set aside chicken once golden brown.

3. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a sauté pan. Cook the onion for 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock, ketchup, scallions and sugar. Bring to a boil then add the Bourbon whiskey, lemon juice and lemon zest.

4. Simmer and add flour until sauce is slightly thickened. Once sauce is thickened, add your chicken. 

5. Once chicken is fully immersed in the sauce, remove the chicken and set aside again. Place your pre-cooked Al Dente Pasta in your sauce. Mix.

6. Put pasta in a serving bowl. Top with your Bourbon chicken. Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with Quickmelt Cheese and the remaining scallions and parsley. Serve hot. Enjoy!

This is another version how you can cook your chicken in a not so usual way! I know it has Bourbon whisky in this recipe but whisky once cook looses its alcohol content and what it usually leave is its sweet and tangy taste. I think this is my version of an adult Chicken and pasta meal. I love the versatility my PFMC ingredients and that I can whip up many dishes from the many variants of Purefood/Magnolia Items in my pantry!

So I hope you enjoy this unique Chicken recipe! :)


Recipe: Magnolia Chicken Bomb Wrap

I have been living alone for more than 10 years now and I must say that living solo can sometimes be really nice and at times, you would wish for the comfort of having some help at home (such as a maid whipping a meal for you)! But I guess living alone has its perks too. One of which is learning how to be a grown up and learning things on your own such as making your own meal (which I have been very good at now). 

This is why I wanna share an easy, healthy, hearty meal I love to make. My Magnolia Chicken Bomb Wrap. It's easy to do and a really satisfying baon for any time of the day!

Magnolia Chicken Bomb Wrap


1. Magnolia Premium Chicken Breast
2. Magnolia All Purpose Flour (for breading)
3. Magnolia Quickmelt Cheese (grated)
4. Magnolia Nutri-Oil Cooking oil
5. 2 Tbsp Magnolia Cream Cheese

6. Bread Crumbs (for breading)
7. 1 whole egg (for breading)
8. 10 pcs. Spinach Leaves (washed and removed from stem)
9. Black rice pre-cooked (option: can use white rice but black rice is more healthy :))
10. 1 sliced green apple (sliced into sticks)
11. Lettuce 
12. Tortilla Wrap (available in supermarket)
13. Salt and pepper to taste
14. 2 tsp oyster sauce
15. Ranch dressing

1. Preheat cooking pan with Magnolia Nutri-Oil, lightly saute the spinach leaves with the oyster sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste.

2.  In a mixing bowl, mix Magnolia grated cheese, Magnolia Cream Cheese and Spinach. This will be your chicken filling.

3. With your chicken breast, cut and make a pocket on your chicken breast and place 1-2 tbsp of your spinach cheese filling.

4.Secure your chicken bomb with toothpicks

5. Bread your chicken bomb. Here's a tip: It should always be dry-wet-dry. So start dipping your chicken in the flour bowl, then in the battered egg, then last in the breading.

6. In a frying pan or fryer, place and cook your chicken until golden brown.

7.Once chicken is cooked, set aside and start assembling your chicken wrap. 

8. In your tortilla wrap, place your lettuce, black rice, apple sticks,chicken bomb and ranch dressing.

9. Wrap your chicken and tadaaaaah, you're done! 

Eating has been my passion but in order to satisfy that passion, I've learned to cook meals that I loved to eat because it wont be always that I can go out and get a meal at a specific hour of craving. Hence, the learning came from necessity and it some how turned into a passion as well. My Magnolia Chicken Bomb Wrap is one healthy alternative option to those who wanted to have a satisfying meal but with lesser calories (especially since summer is coming! Hello Bikini!!). It so easy to do and I can promise you it really really tastes good too!  Your Fried Chicken will never be the same! Like Home Foodie's motto:  it definitely is Masarap, Masustansya at Kayang- Kaya (delicious, healthy and easy to do)! So do try this at home! :)

Lastly, as you can see in my recipe I love using SMPC products because aside from it being of good quality, I am assured of its freshness, availability in the market, and very reasonably market price. SMPC products are available nationwide!
