Hinalog na Manok

Hinalog na Manok is a dish inspired by three popular Filipino Chicken dishes, the tinola, sinampalukan and afritada. Ginger, chilli leaves and papaya came from tinola; the sinigang mix comes from sinampalukan; and the garlic, onions and tomato paste came from afritada. It may sound like a barrage of flavours but it tastes great, mildly spicy, slightly herbal with freshness from tamarind and ginger. I guess this will a be more effective chicken soup compared to the traditional ones specially with that heat from the hot sauce, it will definitely make you sweat.
