This classic Filipino chicken soup is the perfect comfort food. Tender chicken is simmered in a flavorful ginger broth along with aromatic smoky flavors from pepper leaves and a touch of sweetness and texture from papaya. This hearty soup one is of the most popular and well-loved dishes in the Philippines for a reason!
Heat 2 tbsp. cooking oil in a medium high heat Dutch pot. When hot, sauté garlic, onions & ginger until sweated, about 3 minutes.
Add chicken & fish sauce. Sauté chicken pieces to golden brown, around 5-6 minutes.
Pour water to the pan. Add Knorr chicken powder. Bring soup to a boil. Once sauce is boiling, cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked.
Add papaya and cook for another 5 minutes.
Adjust the flavour of the soup. Add fish sauce in increments of 1 tbsp for more flavour depending on your taste.
Add pepper leaves to the soup and cook for another 3 minutes or until the leaves wilt.
Turn off heat and place in serving bowl.
Serve with a steaming bowl of rice & a side of fish sauce & lemon as dipping sauce. Enjoy!
