A Taste of Aklan : Chicken Binakoe



My Berto is such an culinary adventurer. When he sees a recipe that intrigues him, he just has to try it. This is exactly what happened when he saw a recipe for a native dish from Aklan, Philippines. The Chicken Binakoe or Chicken cooked in coconut soup. He asked my opinion and the moment I heard buko or young coconut, I said yes!

Here’s the recipe:

Cooking oil
Pounded Ginger – 1 tbsp
Patis (fish sauce) ¼ cup
Chicken Breast –cut into serving sizes
Lemon Grass – 2 stalks
Buko (young coconut) – 1 pc, separate juice from the soft meat
Salt and Pepper
Sili Leaves
Water

heat oil in pan and sauté ginger. Add patis and then chicken. Sangkutsahin. Simmer till chicken turns white.

Add water and lemon grass, then simmer until the chicken is cooked.

Remove chicken from broth. Place broth is separate bowl and add buko juice. Bring to a boil. Add chicken and buko meat. Let boil, and simmer for a few minutes.

Add salt and pepper to taste. Then add the sili leaves. Cover pot for a few minutes. Serve hot.

The result:
Yummy dish that can serve 6 people. We discovered that a cooked buko tastes so much like papaya. So this dish is actually Tinola with a native flair. Tastes better if native chicken is used.
