Rainy Day Recipe: Tinolang Manok

Hubby requested for something warm for the rainy day. Good thing I actually had tinola in my budget! And although he didn't really appreciate tinola before, he likes it now that we added a twist to it....


1 whole garlic, minced
1 cup cooking oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1 whole onion, chopped
2 tbsp cooking oil
1/4 cup ginger sliced into big pieces (or again, if you don't appreciate ginger bits, go for 1 tbsp ginger powder)
1 whole chicken cut into serving pieces
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp sugar 
2 tbsp salt
1 whole papaya cut into serving pieces
2 bunches of chili leaves
1 whole garlic, minced
soy sauce and calamansi mix

1. Fry minced garlic in cooking oil until golden brown. Drain and set aside.
2. Saute chicken pieces in onion, garlic and ginger. Add enough water to cover chicken, soy sauce, sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
3. Add chili leaves and papaya. Cook for another 10 minutes or until papaya is cooked.
4. Serve with fried garlic and or toyomansi.

Filipino style chicken soup for the soul indeed!

your every woman,
