Shrimp paste, or bagoong, is a typical ingredient of Southeast Asian cooking and the local bagoong is found in many of our dishes. Although some people are a bit turned off by its appearance and smell, bagoong’s distinct flavor brings a savory punch to any Pinoy recipe. I love pork binagoongan, and this recipe came about when I dated someone who, due to religious reasons, could not have pork in his diet. So I replaced the pork with chicken and added a few other things to make it my own.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
