Chicken in Coconut Milk (Chicken Tinola with Gata)

I’m not sure what’s the name of this dish. So I just gave it a name. 🙂

I bought this unknown dish from one of the stalls in a food fair in a mall.  I haven’t had this dish before but it has gata (coconut milk) and  I can see some of the yummy coconut and chicken oil in the sauce…ooohh.

I had to buy.

It’s so similar to tinola but instead of bone-in chicken pieces it has chicken breast fillets and a creamy coconut sauce instead of soup. I liked it a lot so of course I recreated it in my kitchen so I can eat a more of it and I won’t feel bitin anymore (Filipino word for that unsatisfied feeling because of insufficient serving :D)

I’ve been making it since my first try. It’s like making chicken curry with chicken tinola ingredients 🙂

Pardon the quality of the photos..at least there are photos, haha. I’ve no time to set up and use a real camera.

Happy Cooking! 🙂

Saute onion, ginger and chicken.

Add coconut milk and some water. season to taste with fish sauce.

Add the chili leaved and reserved coconut milk at the end.

Enjoy!
