    Hi Connie,

    My husband has skin asthma, thus I can not cook anything malansa. He doesn’t like chicken pieces with bones whenever I cook any chicken recipes. I always use chicken fillet.

    Is there a way I can still cook a very tasty chicken soup recipe even when I’m using fillets?

    Thanks again.

    Gudpm! i read ur recipe about nilagang manok. r u sure of it? sure ka ba na pwedeng pagsamahin ang squash at saka manok? ewan ko lng ha, pro im not sure. alam mo kong ano ung “sangla”, isang uri ng sakit? ito ung makukuha mo kpag hinaluan mo ng squash ang manok…. i think “sangla” ang ketong is just the same.

    LOLZ…of course u can add basically any vegies w/ Nilaga’ng Chicken-Manok.I saute Meat w/Garlic,Onions,& Sliced Ginger root(Thumb Size)para sa mga Allergic “malansa”and 1 TBSP PATIS(may add more later to taste.When the Meat(anykind)Cutup Chicken, Beef, or Pork)starts to turn brownish, add 4 to 6 cups water, and let boil for 10 -15 min.I usually add Potato,Carrots next w/ 1/2tsp.coarsely gound peppercorns.Cook for @5minutes.Then Zucchini Squash(sliced 1/4”),baby Pechay.Turn off and cover. Serve after 15 min.w/ rice…enjoy w/Patis with chopped Jalapeno Peppers.

    Oh, childhood memories! I remember my grandmother used pechay, potatoes, and whole stalks of celery to give a distinct taste to the soup.

    By the way, Connie, I tried your rellenong manok recipe (the version with the beer marinade and ground pork stuffing), and it was fantastic! I cooked it for my French mother-in-law and their Spanish relatives and they loved it. Thanks!

    ang pagluto samin ng nilaga ganito either chicken or beef. ung meat ilagay sa kaserola den lagyan na agad ng patis hanggang maevaporate sya para lumasa ang patis sa meat. den saka lalagyan ng tubig kasama ang union and paminta pakukuluan hanggang malambot na ang meat saka ilalagay ung ibang sangkap na gulay at seasonings.

    I just read your recipe and noted that there is squash item in your procedure above, it says “Meanwhile, quarter the cabbage. Remove the skin and seeds from the squash and cut in the same size as the potatoes.” but squash is not your ingredients.
