Ginataang Manok na Tinola

Ginataang Manok na Tinola
Ginataang Manok na Tinola is my second version of ginataang manok tinola dish. The first version is called Chicken Halang Halang a very popular ginaataang version of chicken tinola in the Visayas and some part of Midanao. The truth is there is really no difference except that Chicken Halang Halang is supposed to be hot and spicy.

Today’s Ginataang Manok na Tinola recipe uses sayote and spinach as a substitute to papaya and chili leaves. I have made spicy or hotter but again the quantity of chili can be reduced to suite ones tolerance to spicy food.
