My Mom that raised me is from the Philippines and this is a basic comfort food there. You can add more Ginger if you like and at home I have added other veggies from time to time like mushroom or a touch of bell pepper or some snap beans. It is not a set in stone recipe and it usually is served with rice and patise (fish sauce) for those that can eat it I make a blend of soy sauce and lime juice to go with it that is 2 parts soy to one part lime for those that wish to try it. but have a seafood allergy such as I developed :( but still excellent recipe thank you for sharing :)

We really enjoyed this fusion dish: it's really easy to fix! The chicken is fall-off-the-bone tender, the veggies hold their flavour and texture to fill you up, and the soy just sharpens everything with a little salt rather than being overwhelming. Thank you- or as they'd say when they ate this in the Philippines, "Maraming salamat"!
