Tinolang Manok

Tinolang Manok( Filipino stewed chicken) is one of the popular dishes in Philippines. Horse Radish (malunggay) and melon grass ( tanglad) are added to the dish, but sad that tanglad is not available in my place. The original for this recipe uses native chicken, but in my place it is not available and I am dying to have chicken tinola so I just used the broiler. The taste is still excellent.  Here is how I prepared it.

1/2 kilo chicken
thumb size ginger( strips)
3 cloves garlic
1 small onion
1 small unripe papaya or sayote
1 cup horse radish ( malunggay)
spring onion
6 cups rice washing
1/4 cup fish sauce (patis) optional
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Saute the garlic, ginger and onion
2. Add the chicken and braised for few minutes.
3. Add the fish sauce(patis), if there is no fish sauce just put salt and pepper, simmer for 5 minutes to allow the flavors to blend well.
4. Add the rice washing and bring to a boil until the chicken meat is cook.
5. Add the papaya then simmer until almost done.
6. Add the horse radish then simmer for 30 seconds and turn off the heat, then serve hot. :-).
