    This is a Filipino chicken dish known as Ginataang Manok. The chicken is flavoured with ginger and coconut milk. I salt it liberally as the coconut milk tends to hide the salt flavour.

    Serves: 6 

    • 3 tablespoons canola oil
    • 1/2 cup sliced fresh ginger
    • 1 (2.5 kg) whole chicken, cut into pieces
    • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper, to taste
    • 2 (400g) tins coconut milk
    • 300g frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:1hour5min  ›  Ready in:1hour15min 

    1. Heat the canola oil in a large frypan over medium heat and stir in the ginger slices. Cook and stir until fragrant and lightly browned. Remove ginger and set aside. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Place chicken in the same frypan over medium-high heat without crowding. Cook until chicken is lightly brown on all sides. Return the ginger to the frypan and add coconut milk. Bring to a boil then cover the frypan with a lid tilted to allow steam to escape.
    2. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the chicken is no longer pink at the bone; stirring occasionally. About 30 minutes.
    3. Stir in the spinach. Simmer uncovered until spinach is warmed through; 8 to 12 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, as necessary.
