Sinigang na Manok (Chicken Sinigang)

Sinigang is an authentic Filipino dish. The basic ingredient of sinigang can either be chicken, pork, fish, beef or shrimp with a lot of vegetables. The 'souring ingredients' often used are either tamarind, calamansi, kamias or guava. Although, fresh tamarind or tamarind mix is the most popular 'souring ingredient.'

For this recipe, I used chicken, tamarind mix and vegetables such as radish, stringbeans (sitaw), kangkong and finger chilies (siling haba). Other vegetables such as okra, eggplant and pechay can also be added. Enjoy!

  • 500 gms chicken, cut into serving pieces
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, quartered

  • 1 large radish, sliced diagonally
  • 1 bunch kangkong
  • 2 finger chilies (siling haba)
  • 5 cups water
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • salt/fish sauce
