“Tinolang Manok”

I’m documenting all the dishes that my mom is cooking. She’s a great cook! I love all the dishes that she cooks.

I’ve been taking pictures of her dishes but I sometimes forgot to blog about it. Since the rainy season (a.k.a. typhoon season), let’s cook “Tinolang Manok”!


Here’s the recipe (from Pinoymix website).


  • 1 kilo whole chicken (cut into parts or choice cuts of breast, thighs of wings).
  • 2 1/2 cups young papaya or sayote
  • 1/2 cup dahon ng sili
  • 5 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons ginger (roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 head garlic (minced)
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons patis
  • pinch of salt and pepper


  1. In a casserole, heat oil and sauté' garlic, onion and ginger.
  2. Add the chicken and water.
  3. Bring to a boil and lower fire, let simmer until chicken is cooked.
  4. Pour in patis, salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Add in papaya or sayote, allow to cook.
  6. When ready to serve, put in dahon ng sili.
  7. Serve hot.

It looks easy to cook, but I’ll just leave the cooking to my mom.
