Nilagang manok or boiled chicken soup is one of the simplest Filipino recipes by just boiling the chicken and putting all the vegetables and spices in a pot until cooked and presto! you have a tasty nilagang manok dish. In choosing the chicken used in this recipe, it is preferable to choose a native chicken instead of the commercial white leghorn or broilers. It is because the native chicken is a lot more tasty and flavorful. You just need more time in cooking native chicken because it is a bit tougher than the white leghorn or broiler.
