Chicken Tinola

Today I tried to use upo, this may be not the first time that upo is used in chicken tinola but it the first for OPC. Upo is already a very filling and delicious fruit vegetable on its own. It was as expected goes very well with the chicken and with the ginger. Cooking is off course basically the same with any other chicken tinola.
