Pinatisang Manok

Perfect with a huge bowl of steamed rice, the Thai fish sauce makes this chicken superbly savory.  For the beef version, click Batangas Beef Short Ribs Pinatisan

Prep Time 5 minutes 
Cooking Time 20 minutes


1 small white onion, brunoise
       (brunoise is to julienne then diced further)
1/4 cup sliced ginger
6 cloves of garlic, minced
3 tablespoons Thai fish sauce (patis)
1 kilo chicken thighs
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
2 bay leaves
1/4 cup pork lard
cilantro leaves for garnish


Combine the onion, ginger, garlic, fish sauce, chicken thighs, peppercorns, and bay leaves in a  bowl.

In a heavy frying pan, heat the pork oil over high heat. Sauté the chicken thigh, 4 minutes per side.

3  Add the marinade and reduce completely over medium heat.

Serve warm and garnish with cilantro leaves.

    tasted like tinola without the sabaw. Even better is if you fry the leftovers.
