Chicken Tinola – Tinolang Manok

Tinola is a ginger based soup with chicken
Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Tinola in Tagalog or Visayan, or la uya in Ilocano is a soup-based dish served as an appetizer or main entrée in the Philippines.

Traditionally, this dish is cooked with chicken, wedges of green papaya, and leaves of the siling labuyo chilli pepper in broth flavoured with ginger, onions and fish sauce. A common variant substitutes fish or pork for chicken, choko (chayote) instead of papaya, or with tomatoes and morinuga leaves known as marungay or malunggay or kamunggay (in Cebuano), instead of pepper leaves. However, an all-vegetable broth in Cebu with kamunggay in prominence is called utan kamunggay or utan bisayâ, while it is called law-oy in Mindanao and laswa in Hiligaynon. Another variation is Tinolang Tahong, a soup made with mussels, ginger, onion, garlic and bird’s eye chilli.

The exact origins of Tinola is obscure. One of the earliest mentions of the dish is in José Rizal’s first novel, Noli Me Tangere, where Kapitan Tiago served it to Crisostomo Ibarra upon arriving from Europe. He was given the breast, to the dismay of the corrupt Spanish friar, Padre Damaso, who got chicken neck, which is considered to be the least favoured chicken part.

Tinolang Manok (Chicken with Papaya Soup)

Tinola is a ginger based soup with chicken as the main ingredient. As a native Filipino dish, the chicken is usually cooked in a low heat for quite some time to bring out the natural flavour.The secret in making a good chicken tinola is to simmer the chicken for longer periods of time. This process will let all the flavour of the chicken come out and it also makes the chicken tender and tasty.
