My favorite comfort food any season of the year
2 lbs chicken wings, cut into half (or any chicken part desired)
3 pieces sayote or a large green papaya, cut into bite size
1 cup pepper leaves or malunggay leaves or both
1 stem lemon grass, cut into 4
1 small red bell pepper, julienne
2 thumb size size ginger, sliced thin
1 medium size onion, cut thin
2 tablespoon fish sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon cooking oil
5 cups of water
Saute ginger and onion using a deep pot in cooking oil.
When you start to smell the aroma of the ginger add the lemon grass and chicken.
Season with fish sauce and stir for few minutes.
Add water, cover pot and bring to boil. When it starts to boil reduce heat to medium low.
Once the chicken is fully cooked add the slices of sayote to the soup.
Simmer till sayote is almost fully cooked then add the bell pepper then the malunggay or pepper leaves.
Season with ground pepper and salt to taste.
Simmer for few minutes or till the vegetables is fully cooked.
Remove from heat and serve hot.
