Pininyahang Manok with Gata
Pininyahang Manok with Gata. This is the second version of my Pininyahang Manok, the first version was one of the first dish that was published on OPC. Pininyahang manok is a family favorite, the original recipe was cooked with evaporated milk. Pininyahang manok was also the most visited post, not to mention it that was constantly on the first page Google search for several years. Being so popular it was also being copied by almost all copy paste bloggers.

Chicken Pineapple with Coconut Milk

Ok let’s get back to the main topic of this post. Pininyahang Manok with Gata as the name suggest, I used coconut milk/cream instead of evaporated milk. I also added about 1/4 kilo of chicken liver for the reason that pininyahang manok in general is taste yummier with a lot of chicken liver. Again cooking is basically that same with my other pininyahang recipe in the archives. In fact it is similar to my Pininyahang Baboy with Gata. I do have also a cheesy version in the archives , Pininyahang Manok with Cheese that has also become a favorite to most readers.
