Tinolang Manok (Chicken Tinola)

Chicken stewed in ginger broth also known as Chicken Tinola or Tinolang Manok is a delicious Filipino soup where chicken is sauteed and simmered in broth with delicious vegetables. 

Chicken Tinola is easy to cook and very comforting. A perfect dish during cold weather or if a family member is feeling under the weather.

Stewing chicken or stewing hen is used in this recipe and it turned out really refreshing. Stewing chicken needs to be cooked longer so I used a pressure cooker. Stewing (hens) chicken yield delicious and rich, flavorful chicken stock. Check your local Asian grocery store for stewing chicken at the frozen section.

This dish reminds me of my hometown, Iloilo City where we usually uses native or "Bisaya" chicken when we making tinola dishes.
