Pininyahang Manok

{{totalReview}}
Bring the taste of Philippines to your home with this unique dish. Literally translating to ‘pineapple chicken’, Pininyahang Manok unsurprisingly features chicken and pineapple as its two main ingredients. The chicken is cooked in pineapple juice and evaporated milk to create a creamy sauce with a sweet zesty punch. Throw in some green and red bell peppers for added color and top it off with cashew nuts for an extra crunch.
