Ginataang Manok is a chicken stewed in coconut milk together with green papaya and vegetable greens like Dahon ng sili, Malunggay, basta green ediwup yan!

But for this recipe we’ll be using PETCHAY.

Parang Tinola o Pininyahang Manok ang process of cooking nito but instead of tubig or chicken stock, ang gagamitin natin ay coconut milk o sa mga beterano KAKANG GATA.

Also, it has lots of ginger as that gives the zing as well as the fresh taste that cuts well with the creamy coconut milk or kakang gata.

Wag na nating patagalin, TARA FOODTRIP!

Cooking Tips

Here’s some recipe tips on cooking Ginataang Manok

  • Cut chicken in uniform size to ensure even cooking.
  • The recipe calls for whole chicken but any choice parts such as wings or thighs will do. You can also substitute boneless meat for ease of prep, although bone-in delivers the most flavor.
  • For a smooth consistency, simmer and do not boil the coconut milk as it might curdle or separate in high heat cooking.
  • Pan-fry the potatoes to keep from falling apart when finished off in the sauce.
  • If you want to temper the heat, scrape off the seeds and veins of the chili peppers
