I originally saw this recipe on Twitter. It was shared by someone but the recipe came from Erwan Heussaff. I already lost the screenshot so bear with me as I try my best to share it with you. (Totally irrelevant question, anyone here who can’t stand Erwan too?)
Here’s the recipe for Ginataang Manok. The recipe is pretty straightforward but it does need some attention. Here’s what you’ll need:
- The trio – ginger, onion, and garlic. I prefer using white onion because it tastes sweet and not too overpowering.
- Chicken – when I cooked this I used regular chicken but Erwan suggests using chicken breast. I’ve tried it too and I prefer the chicken breast just because I don’t need to use a fork when eating.
- Coconut milk – any will do! If you will use a sachet, check if it has MSG. If it does, no need to add salt and pepper. If it doesn’t have MSG, make sure to add it.
- Vegetable of choice – I’ve tried kang kong and spinach. It tastes the same.
It’s a simple recipe that the husband and I love. It’s super flavorful especially since the broth of the chicken is all natural. It’s also healthy! You guys know how much I am trying to add veggies in my life and recipes like this make it easier for me to eat it. 🙂
Have you tried making Ginataang Manok? Do we have the same recipe?
