Chicken Tinola is a light chicken soup that is always served with rice. Ginger is the key ingredient for this dish.
The broth for the Tinola recipe is flavored with slices of ginger and cooked with green or raw papaya and Dahon ng Sili or Pepper leaves.
Some variations use a whole lot of ginger to give the soup some heat, because it is a perfect dish to during a cold, rainy night.
