Make Creamy Soursop Chicken

Edited by Mian Sheilette Ong, Anonymous, Rebecca M., Lynn and 1 other

Soursop, guanavana, or guyabano is a thorny, green to greenish brown fruit that is creamy, sour, and sweet, all at the same time. It is often used in candies and smoothies because of its refreshing taste. When you cut the fruit open, the white flesh may remind you of the coconut, but when you taste it, it is more like a combination of pineapples, bananas, and strawberries. That is why this tropical fruit can be used in savory dishes as well. Combining soursop with meats is not a popular practice. However, once you try it, you will experience a brand new taste sensation. Soursop is also known for its anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antinociceptive, anti-diabetic, cytotoxic, and antileishmanial. Knowing how to make creamy soursop chicken is definitely a delicious start to being healthier. Once you're done with this recipe, you'll be a star in your kitchen and a beacon of guilt-free eating to your family.

Tips

  • Chop and de-seed the soursop the night before you cook it. Just make sure you place it in an air-tight food container before you put it in your fridge.
  • Choose a very ripe soursop. The skin should be soft to the touch. The riper the soursop, the creamier it will be for the dish.
  • If you have problems with any of these steps, ask a question for more help, or post in the comments section below.
