I honestly don’t know why it’s called Pesang Manok. But it should mean nilagang manok. I love this soup! It’s a little different from Chicken Tinola because of some ingredients. Both of those chicken soups are delicious though! So if you haven’t tried cooking Pesang Manok, now is the time to experiment! 😊
Whenever I eat, I somehow always crave for a soup. So expect a lot more soup recipes to come!
