Ginataang Manok (Chicken Cooked in Coconut Milk) Recipe ...
A fragrant Filipino dish with chicken and ginger simmered in coconut milk.
This simple chicken in a vibrant coconut milk sauce will fill your kitchen with the enticing aromas of South American cooking. It's great served over pasta or rice.
Put this together in my dutch oven. I'm not a fan of dark meat, and my family is only 3 people large, so I made this with a pound of breast, and only 1 can of coconut milk. Used the whole package of spinach and all suggested ginger for extra flavor. It was still too bland for me, so I shook in a healthy amount of garlic powder and ground ginger at the end (and of course more salt). Served with brown rice, and the family really enjoyed it. I will definitely make this again - thank you for sharing your family recipe!! Even though I tweaked it to my tastes, I still really appreciate the starting point.
This Filipino porridge dish features chicken wings and rice in chicken broth seasoned with onion, ginger, and garlic.
This is sooooO good! I added a teaspoon of paprika powder for smoky flavour. I din't have spinach so I used potato and carrots instead. #foodgasm
ok - i used chicken breasts and ground ginger too bc that is what I had- and added patis, onion and fresh garlic.. what Filipino dish is complete with out Patis? I think it needs more flavor- I am going to add some other things- and that will turn it into a whole new recipe.
Cooked this for the first time last night and it was delicious! I followed another's recommendation and used powdered spices for the garlic and ginger as I get home late from work and don't have alot of time to prep fresh ginger and garlic. Recipe came out fine. One modification I made was to season the chicken while browning with salt, pepper, garlic and ginger. Then, after I added the coconut milk (used 1 can for 2 lbs of chicken), I used more seasonings of salt, pepper, garlic and ginger to taste. Also threw in some sliced scallions together with coconut milk. After simmering chicken in coconut broth until tender, I then threw in pre-washed fresh spinach (much better than frozen spinach). Loved it! Will definitely be making this recipe again :)
I like this recipe. I make variations every time, but the basic idea is yum and my whole family likes it.
This one-pot wonder combines chicken, chayote squash, bok choy, and spinach in a savory broth.
