Most people will ask what is Sipo Eggs? It’s a Kapampangan dish cook with shrimps, carrots, green peas, corns, sitsaro (snow pea), singkamas (turnips) and quail eggs in a white creamy butter sauce. Sipo eggs is actually a common dish in any house party, fiesta, wedding or baptismal. Although not all people are familiar with its name. I know some of you will attest you have taste it but just doesn’t know it is called Sipo Eggs.
Oh I just love this recipe, Sipo Eggs! If you’re asking why there is singkamas? The kapampangans really know what they’re cooking. Before you even get over satiated with the sauce, they’ve already added turnips. The juicy singkamas is a good breaker when the creamy sauce becomes slightly boring in taste. So “umay” factor is lessened. Come and let’s cook this Kapampangan specialty today.

On the same pan with left over butter, saute the onion and garlic. Add in chicken fillet cubes. Cooked until chicken is cooked and color turns white. Add in mixed vegetables and keep on cooking for a few minutes using medium to low heat. Cook for 3 minutes.
