Easy Chicken Steak for Lunch

Needless to say, I love chicken, especially chicken breast, wings, and legs. Whenever I go to the groceries during the weekends, I see to it that I buy chicken (breast mostly). You can do lots of things with it.

For me, I love making chicken cordon bleu, chicken teriyaki, chicken adobo or orange chicken. My mom and sister, on one hand, make amazing chicken relleno and chicken steak. I like chicken steak best, so for today, I will share how my mom makes it.



1/4 stick butter

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

10 large pieces Calamansi

4 Tbsp Soy Sauce

3/4 Chicken Breast (de-boned)

2 large white onion (sliced into rings)

Salt and Pepper


  1. Prepare the chicken. Take note that you must remove the skin. In my province, they say that a chicken dish tastes “malangsi or malansa” if it is not prepared correctly. Often times the off-putting taste is caused by the chicken skin and the excess water, so make sure that you drain the meat for about 10 minutes before you cook it.
  2. Heat the pan, and saute the garlic. Put the slices of chicken in and cook both sides. Once the meat changes color and texture, you can put the butter in.
  3. Add a bit of water and let it simmer.
  4. Season with soy sauce and calamansi juice. Again, let it simmer.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Top it with the chopped onions. Cover the pan, and turn off the stove. Let the onion a bit. (I like mine raw, so I don’t really cover the pan at all.)
