Tinolang Manok (Chicken Soup)

I am kuripot and I know that! If I needed chicken breast for whatever I am going to cook, I don't buy boneless chicken breast mainly because it is priced almost twice as split breast. All I just need to do is few minutes of deboning it and presto I will have boneless chicken.

I bought some split chicken breast and I deboned it. I don't want to waste the bones in it because there are still some meat in it so I decided to make tinolang manok. You see I am still a Filipino at heart! I couldn't bear to waste something that I can still cook and eat, that is why I made chicken soup. Well, it didn't go to waste as Andrea and I eat it with rice. Andrea even eat the veggies in it.


Ingredients:
chicken (cut up)
beans
cabbage
ginger
onion
pepper
salt
water

Directions:
Wash the chicken thoroughly and put in a casserole. Add ginger, onion, salt and pepper. Cook in medium fire until all the liquids are gone. Add water and cook the chicken until done. Add green beans and cabbage. Serve.

Note:
I miss the green papaya, lemon grass and pepper leaves. Of course, nothing beats (native chicken) tinolang manok. Since it is hard to find all these, I just have to satisfy myself to whatever is available in my fridge.

Lu, you and Dhemz with all your food pics. It's driving me hungry! I haven't tasted tinola in years. The best one I ate was in the Philippines - I find the chicken there has more flavor.

I know my mother used to put potatoes but I prefer the papaya.

Regarding being kuripot, it's not being kuripot it's being smart. I do the same thing. Sinisave ko yong bones for later dishes :)
