First, sauté onion, garlic, and tomato until soft and fragrant. Add corn, shredded chicken breast and chicken stock or water then bring to a boil. You can use white or yellow corn, just make sure that these are fresh. To check for freshness, make sure that the husk is bright green and wrapped tightly against the corn. The kernels should also look plump and not wrinkled.

Season with salt, ground pepper, sugar, and AJI-NO-MOTO® for that added savoriness and it also enhances the natural flavors of the ingredients. Mix well then add the malunggay leaves. Transfer to a bowl then serve and enjoy!
