Chicken Tinola

weekend snapshots

Chicken Tinola

I don't know how it's called in English, but this soupy chicken dish was what we had for dinner last Friday. Not my favorite chicken dish, but I personally chose this dish after seeing that we only have chicken in the fridge. I cooked this as well, by the way. Each of us have one drumstick - enough to fill our tummy for dinner.

Typically, people use young papaya for this dish, but I am not fond of eating young papaya (but I eat a lot of the ripe ones), so I used sayote for this. Topped with chili leaves, I think I did a good job in cooking the dish. No violent reaction from the family, so I guess all's fine. =)

My DH will call anything with broth or tomato sauce "stew". I call the dish ginger chicken stew or lemon grass chicken stew. (Syempre ako lang yun.)

Sounds nutritious.

One of my friend's kid really loves that dish. So every time she's I make sure I cook that. Have a great week ahead!

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
