-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
with the Family
Out of the blue, I received a package in the mail from Pinoy Store, a local website selling Filipino food products. It turned out to be my dear goddaughter KF, sending a timely re-up of sinigang soup powder (see 11.363 AHQFGT Premium).
With plenty on hand, I used 2 sachets to make a huge pot of whole chicken sinigang. In 6.5 years of living in the Philippines, I had only encountered sinigang varieties involving pork, beef, corned beef, and shrimp, never chicken, but I’m sure that chicken is perfectly legit.
It was mostly hit, a bit miss. The broth turned out luxuriously rich and thick. However, the chicken didn’t take on much of the sinigang flavor. Anyway, the dish was solid overall.
Next time, I’ll marinate the chicken for an hour in advance of the boil.
