Chicken Piaparan ni Mama

By Michelle Anne P. Sayre|

Masimhutan ang kahumot
Sa gilutong sud-an ni Mama
Ginisang lamas, manok, ug gatas
Nagkandaiyang nagpatigbabaw

Nilutong Chicken Piaparan
Gitipuk-an sa pamilya
Dili gayod mapugngan
Nga magtiam-tiam

Paghukad sa kan-on
Kuyog ang sud-an
Dali-dali mudagan sa lamesa
Aron makakuha lang og pwesto

Kompleto ang tanan,
Pangadyi nalang ang kulang
Gisugdan sa amoang kinamanghuran
Ang pagpasalamat sa maong grasya

Nitingog na ang plato’g kutsara
Nagpasabot na nga mangaon na,
Ali na! Mangaon ta!
Tilawan ta ang Chicken Piaparan ni Mama

Ang Chicken Piaparan ni Mama
Una gayod ang sili nga ingredient
Aron matilawan ang kahalang sa sud-an
Maong Piaparan ang pangalan.

Ang laming sud-an sa lamesa
Makadala sa matag miyembro
Sa pamilya og nagkalainlaing
Pagpaambit ug mga katawa

Ang Chicken piaparan ni
Mama Lami gayod sa ngatanan
Labi nag bag-o pang hukad,
Init pa ug humot.

Nahurot ang maong niluto,
Busog kaayo ang pamilya
Tungod gayod kay daghan

Diri sa Iligan,
Ang mga Iliganon, hilig gayod
Og halang Mao nang bisag-ahang
Karenderya bida ang Piaparan

Busa, unsa pa ang dugayan?

Dungagan ali na! Hamal napud ta!
Mangaon ta sa Chicken Piaparan ni Mama
