An Oystra Special Chicken Dish Using Sarsaya Oyster Sauce

There's a new cooking product in the market and I'm happy to share this exciting news to mommies like me who loves to cook up a storm for their loved ones but keeping the budgt intact.

Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation had launched Sarsaya® Oyster Sauce and adding to the excitement is its celebrity endorser, Mr. Coco Martin.

Sarsaya® Oyster Sauce is concentrated from real oysters, complete with seasonings to provide a
delicious blend of savory, sweet and salty taste to any dish.  According to Pen Alvina, Ajinomoto’s Category Manager for Menu Seasonings, “Sarsaya® Oyster Sauce is a unique brand of oyster sauce that is created to suit Filipino taste and preference, making many Filipino dishes like ginisang kangkong and adobo more flavorful and delicious.”

At the said event, a live cooking demonstration and cook-off was facilitated by Chef Mcrhyan Rodrigo. Chef Mac cooked Filipino favorites Ginisarsayang Kangkong with Tokwa and his own recipe, Thai-style Stir Fried Chicken using Sarsaya® Oyster Sauce. Guests were also invited to participate in a cook-off, where they discovered the convenience of using Sarsaya® Oyster Sauce to turn ordinary dishes extra special and flavorful.

I wasn't able to try the dishes so when I went home I immediately cooked Chef Mac's Thai Style Stir Fried Chicken.

It's true what they say about Ajinotmoto's oyster sauce, it gave that undoubtedly umami flavor but without being too overwhelming.  With only a mere 30 g pack it made the six-piece chicken dish looked golden with a balanced sweet and salty taste added to them and just a hint of the fishy/oyster aroma.

Even Mr. Coco Martin himself caliamed, “Kakaiba dahil lasang oyster na oyster!”

He loved how Sarsaya® Oyster Sauce can add that delicious and authentic oyster flavor that truly enhances simple dishes. was chosen to endorse Sarsaya® Oyster Sauce. Aside from being a big fan of his grandmother’s cooking, Coco graduated with a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management. Coco claimed,

  1. Actual cooking of the chicken is done when the consumer reheats the product. On the other hand, fried chicken is completely precooked during the frying process. Frozen fried chicken is reheated mainly to raise the serving temperature.comfort food recipes
