summary

Filipino chicken-ginger soup.

Ingredients

  • 1 chicken, chopped into sections

  • 1 medium-large onion, chopped into bits

  • 10 ml minced garlic

  • 2 thumbs of ginger, sliced thin

  • 1.5 liters water

  • 15 ml fish sauce

  • spices * salt and pepper to taste * 1 bay leaf (optional)

  • 1 green papaya/chayote, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces

  • large fistful of spinach

Procedure

  1. Saute chicken, onion, garlic, and ginger. Use oil if desired.

  2. Put saute ingredients in slow cooker with water and fish sauce. Add spices.

  3. 3 hours before serving, add the papaya/chayote.

  4. 15 minutes before serving, add the spinach.

Troubleshooting

If the papaya/chayote is difficult to skewer with a fork when you go to add the spinach, then the pieces were probably too big. To fix this put the pieces in a saucepan and boil it on the stove top for a while and then add it back.
