Sorol Recipe
Camiguin Chicken in Coconut Milk

In the original recipe, the chicken is cut into small pieces with the bones intact. This creates splinters that the diner might choke on. Instead, we keep the bones only during the boiling to add flavor to the broth, then remove them afterwards. This makes for safer and more pleasant eating.

kusina ingredients 
  • 1 native chicken, about 1 kilo
  • 1 thumb-sized ginger, pared then sliced crosswise
  • 1 onion, peeled then sliced
