Tiniim na Manok

Tiniim na Manok is a Filipino dish made with whole chicken slowly simmered in a sweet, tangy and spiced pineapple juice marinade until tender. This liquid is then simmered and cooked until thick in consistency then served as a dipping sauce. The result is a tender juicy chicken with tons of flavour.

Tired of roast or even grilled chicken then give this a shot, it’s a quite unique way of presenting a whole chicken, perhaps do this on the next Christmas dinner or Thanksgiving, or better yet create an even grander version made with turkey.
