Chicken Binakol

Chicken Binakol
The authentic Chicken Binakol uses native chicken. It is cooked with young coconut water and meat in a bamboo tube. The Visayan version of chiken binakol, also uses native chicken. It is simmered with tanglad in the coconut shell itself. The home cooked version of chicken binakol is cooked similar to tinola with the addition of fresh young coconut meat and water which adds a touch of sweetness to the broth.
