Tinolang Manok

Im back!!!! It's been a months since I last posted here. Now I am back with a recipe which is very easy. Perfect for cold nights.

Tinolang Manok (Chicken Ginger Stew with Vegetables) recipe is a Filipino food dish that is relatively easy to cook. This dish is light and refreshing. A simple broth with chicken, chili leaves and chayote or green papaya, it is a favorite dish in our home.

Now to do this, you will need;

1 kilo whole chicken, cut into pieces.

1 small young papaya or chayote, cut into small pieces.

1 thumbsize ginger, slliced into strips

1/2 cup dahon ng sili (chili leaves) or mallunggay leaves

1 liter of water

5 garlic cloves, minced

1 red onion, diced

4 tablespoons oil

2 tablespoons patis (fish sauce)

Then what you'll do;

In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat.

 sauté garlic, onion and ginger until fragrant

Add chicken cuts. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes until chicken turns white.

Season with fish sauce. Cook for another 3 minutes.

Pour in water (or rice water). Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and let it simmer until chicken is half-done.

Add in sayote (or papaya). Continue simmering until chicken and vegetable are tender.

Season with pepper and salt according to your taste (you can use chicken bullion cubes).

Then add sili leaves or malunggay.

Cover and let simmer for about 3 minutes or until the sili/malunggay leaves are cooked.

Remove from heat. Serve with rice.  :)

Tara let's eat!
