I love the sound of that, but I loathe eating chicken with bone intact. A lot of Asian style cooking uses that method, but I just don't see the point of it. Does the cooked bone enhance the flavor somehow?

I also wonder.

You can do the boneless version and use chicken breast just as well. Bone in in this recipe is the tradional way it is usually served.

same as chicken afritada minus the lemon or calamnsi

The bone and the marrow inside provides a lot of additional flavor. although a pain to eat, the taste is enhanced.

yes, the bone has added more taste

Yes it does enhance the flavor. If you loathe eating chicken with the bone intact, I suggest you find another cuisine to focus on because every Filipino recipe with chicken involves leaving the bone intact. There is no "boneless skinless chicken breast" in the Philippines. That, anonymous, is an American thing.
