Author's Notes

Using homemade chicken broth and not using fish sauce in this recipe, makes this a low sodium dish.

Despite not using the traditional fish sauce to this dish, it didn't sacrifice the flavors for this Chicken Tinola.

I store a whole bulb of fresh ginger in the freezer for up to 6 months (if they even last that long) since I use it a lot for cooking. I just cut 1-inch section at a time for my recipes.

Use the side of a teaspoon for peeling the skin-off a ginger root.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
In medium heat, add Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) in a sauté pan. Once the oil shimmers, add Onion (1), Garlic (2 cloves), and Fresh Ginger (1 in). Sauté for about 2 minutes until onion is caramelized and ginger is golden brown. Place the aromatics on the side of the sauté pan, being careful not to burn the garlic.
step 2
Now add and sear pieces of Whole Chicken (1) on both sides. This will take about 4 to 6 minutes.
step 3
Add a pinch of Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1 pinch), and a dash of Salt (to taste), and Ground Black Pepper (to taste).
step 4
Add Chicken Broth (4 cups), bring to a boil, add Potatoes (4) and simmer for about 15 minutes.
step 5
Then add Chayote Squash (1) and Chili Pepper (1) and simmer for another 5 minutes
step 6
Add Fresh Spinach (1 bag), cover, and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. Done!
step 7
Serve with steamed rice or you can enjoy Chicken Tinola as soup.
