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!
