Sinigang na Manok is chicken stewed in a tamarind soup base. It is commonly sour in taste and is cooked using a variety of vegetables. It is similar to “Sinampalukang Manok,” with the exception of young tamarind leaves. It is also one of the variations of the Sinigang dishes. The amount of soup depends on how much water is used. More vegetable can also be added to increase the quantity. The sourness of the soup can be adjusted by varying the amount of tamarind mix powder.
