My 1st Tinola Ü

Yehaaaa! After my 1st successful Pork Sinigang, I was so inspired to try new dishes and here’s my second masterpiece. Tinola indeed. Same thing, I have searched Google for the recipe and how to of this Filipino dish. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you’ll notice that I just recently had this urge to learn how to cook and of course I’ve started with famous dishes from our country.

This is the simple recipe I got from PinoyMix

Chicken Tinola


  • 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 saute’ 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.

I’m so proud of this dish that I have cooked for it was a success. Tasted good for an amateur like me. I’m not saying it tasted good because I cooked it.. Haha!  ‘Cause I’d let my Hubby do the tasting and also one of our housemates so I’m pretty sure that I did great! More recipes to come for me. Cheers!
