Facts about Tinolang Manok:
Tinola is a ginger and onion based soup with chicken as the usual main ingredient. Chicken tinola is an authentic Filipino main dish and best complimented with green papaya wedges (an alternative is chayote) and chili pepper leaves. As a traditional dish, the chicken is usually cooked in low heat for quite some time to bring out the natural flavor. This dish is best served during cold and rainy weather because of the warming effect of the soup. Of course, this dish is perfect when paired with white rice. I usually have rice if I am eating this for lunch, but will just have the soup and meat for dinner.
