How to cook this great Filipino dish

Kalderata Manok is a Spanish influenced dish that your find being cooked throughout the Philippines and is known as Chicken Calderata.
For my English pallet its a wonderful curry and this is Naomi's version.
600 gm Chicken fillets cubed

Pinch of mono sodium glutamate
1 Large Onion chopped
cooking oil for frying
1 can of peeled tomatoes
250 ml coconut milk
3 cloves of Garlic
1 tea spoon Hot Chilli and garlic sauce
250 gm cubed potato
125 gm cubed carrot
200 gm Pineapple

Heat cooking oil in a wok and then add the garlic and Onion until brown, then add the potato, carrots, salt,Mono sodium glutamate and chicken, add a little water, stir and simmer for 10 min.
Then add the tin of chopped tomatoes and coconut milk, simmer for an additional 20 min then add the pineapple slices and cook for a final 5 min.
Serve with rice and enjoy.
Naomi will be preparing this dish for guest staying at La Forge and La Veille maison, the Brittany holiday cottages with a heated swimming pool based in the Morbihan region of southern Brittany, France.
