Tinolang Manok Recipe

Unknown     8/04/2015  No comments

Tinolang Manok (Chicken Ginger Stew) is another Filipino classic dish. This is light and refreshing, best served during lunch or dinner, especially during rainy days. 

The first time I tried to cook this dish, I used Sayote (Chayote). In the Philippines, it is grown mostly on mountainous part of the country such as Baguio City. It is used in many kinds of soup dishes, stir-fried veggies and chopsuey. 

One day, my father-in-law saw me with Sayote in Tinolang Manok. He told me, "Paula, you should use green papaya instead of sayote. It is more tasty, makes the dish more delicious and papaya is healthier than sayote." From the moment he told me that, I kept that piece of wonderful advice and I always use green papaya now when cooking Tinolang Manok. 

My kids love this dish a lot. And I know a lot of moms who always cook this viand for their children. You guys should try it, it is very easy to cook and really delicious. 


1 kilo chicken, cut into serving pieces (any part of your choice) 

3 tbsp oil 

3 cloves garlic, minced
