Chicken Tinola

A comfort food for every filipino especially during the rainy and cold season. Chicken cut ups in a flavorful soup with chili leaves, ginger and papaya, some like using chayote instead, which ever you prefer, but in our house we love using the manibalang or the almost ripe papaya. The broth is so good, kind of sweet soup tinola. Give it try and be the verdict.

1 thumb size ginger sliced into strips
2 Tbsp chicken powder
1/4 cup patis
