Ginataang manok with pineapple and tomatoes




This is one of Johann's favorite. I really never thought my little boy would love a dish with coconut. Most of the kids I knew, from my cousins, nephews to nieces, they would never touch a dish with coconut when they were young as Johann. Well, I should say maybe genetic played a role,my hubby is such a fan of coconut. He just loves every dish with coconut or we call it"gata". Here's the recipe:

1 kg. chicken (cut into pieces)
onions
5-6 tomatoes
1 can pineapple
1 can coconut milk
salt
oil

Season the chicken with salt and brown the chicken lightly for few minutes, then add the onions and tomatoes. Add the pineapple excluding the juice when the tomatoes are a bit soft. Cover and let it cook for about 3o mins or until the chicken is already tender. Do not be tempted to add water, for the juice from the pineapple and vegetables are enough to cook the chicken. Pour the coconut milk, uncover and let it simmer for few minutes, adjust seasoning,sprinkle a little bit of herb, (mine was italian herb)and you're done!
