My Chicken Binakol

It’s been a while since I posted about my love for cooking. Today I am sharing with you, Chicken Binakol. This chicken soup is popular in Iloilo, however, I have tried this dish when we ate lunch in a restaurant near the Kalibo Airport.

Here’s how Chicken Binakol looked like when served for our lunch. The moment I tasted the soup, it easily excites my palate. I was 100% sure that my kids will love it and they do.

To tell you, Chicken Binakol tasted like Tinolang Manok, but it is a little sweeter because of the coconut meat and coconut water.

Chicken Binakol like Tinolang Manok is much tastier if made from “Manok Tagalog” or local chicken, but since it’s difficult to buy this kind of chicken meat in the metro, I use the regular chicken meat we commonly find in the supermarket. 

my chicken binakolRecipe:

  • Chicken meat
  • Gloves of garlic
  • Onion
  • Ginger
  • Salt or Patis
  • Sayote /Papay
  • Coconut Meat
  • Coconut water
  • Sili leaves

Cooking is easy, it’s like making your Tinolang Manok. Saute garlic, onion and ginger in oil. Add the chicken meat until it turned light brown. Put salt or patis to taste then pour the coconut water and then simmer. Add the sayote or papaya, let it boil for a while then add the sili leaves. Serve hot.

  1. Oh wow I think the taste would be pretty interesting just as it looks. Tinola + coconut water is very Filipino. This is a great warm soup as comfort food.

  2. Oooh I’ve never been to Iloilo, I didn’t know that there was such a dish called Chicken Binakol, I’ll try this one of these days, your recipe seems easy enough to follow! Thanks!

  3. Mommy Tess, it’s fresh buko (coconut water) po, baka maging ginataang manok yan ehehehe na masarap din naman.
