Chicken Sinigang sa Miso (Chicken in Tamarind Broth with Miso)

Sinigang is a Filipino dish of tamarind-based soup of meat (or seafood) and veggies. It’s sour and delicious, really delicious, I can’t describe it, you just have to make it to see for yourself.

I’m talking about pork sinigang, btw which is my favorite  but there are other types of sinigang: beef, prawns, fish ( usually milkfish or salmon).

Other sinigang varieties use different souring agent like santol, guava, kamias and miso.   I have never tried making sinigang sa miso or use chicken for sinigang so that’s what I decided to make for this month’s KCC theme.

I just made this chicken sinigang tonight for dinner and it was sooo good!  It’s my first time to cook using miso. I was surprised to learn that miso is actually made of soybeans – fermented soybeans and that it doesn’t  taste sour at all – it doesn’t smell good, either( my husband said that it smells like feet.. silly).

And here I thought that it’s what makes the soup sour but I was wrong, it turns out that a souring agent like tamarind or lemon juice is still needed to turn it into a sinigang dish and that the miso aside from giving umami to the soup, also acts like a thickener  just like the gabi (taro) in pork sinigang .

…here’s my Chicken Sinigang:  🙂

First, saute the onion, then the tomatoes..

..add the chicken pieces

..then the miso

add water and chillies..bring to a boil

..when chicken is tender, add okra

..add the  mustard greens last

..cook for about 5 minutes more..

Serve hot with rice, lots of rice!  *burp* oops, excuse me 😀
