Pininyahang manok with the #PambansangManok - Magnolia Chicken

If you haven't been hiding under a rock recently, then I'm sure you've seen Magnolia Chicken everywhere. I see their ads on billboards. I see the ads on my Facebook feed. I see my mommy blogger friends sharing their chicken recipes. That chicken is everywhere!

It's okay because it's a treat seeing all three of our Miss Universe queens in one space.

So if bilib sila Pia Wurtzbach, Gloria Diaz, and Margie Moran sa #PambansangManok, then ako rin bilib na rin! I cooked chicken dishes last week using Magnolia Chicken and the chicken has a nice weight and feel, hindi mabaho, hindi slimy, and maganda ang color ng flesh. I like that the chickens are raised in farms that ensure the birds are stress-free. They're also free from antibiotic residue, hormones, and steroids. They have Omega-3, too, so healthy chickies for me and my babies!

Isang manok, dalawang ulam. 

Yes, like my mommy blogger friends, I will share my own chicken recipe dahil pinadalhan ako ng Magnolia ng limang whole chickens. LIMA! My freezer is full. Dear Magnolia Chicken, thanks for making sure my kids' tummies are full! Okay, not a sponsored post but I'm grateful so I'll share what I cooked with my whole chickens.

Now, I've never cooked whole chicken before. I don't have an oven—just an oven toaster. So I took my huge knife and mighty poultry scissors and went to work on that whole chicken in a jiffy. I think poultry scissors is one of the best kitchen tools ever invented, mommies. Go buy one!

It was such a big chicken!

I divided the chopped parts into two—one for soy garlic chicken and one for my family's favorite pininyahang manok.

Yung soy garlic, super easy. I just bought a pack of mix from the supermarket, rolled the chicken in it, then deep fried it. Tadaaaa!

So I'll share with you my super quick pininyahang manok recipe instead.

Super Easy Pininyahang Manok

3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 bell pepper, sliced into 1-cm squares
1 pack of tomato chunks, drained (set aside juice)
Half a chicken, (ask your Magnolia Chicken butcher for the tinola cut)
1 cup milk
1 tbsp patis

Chicken absorbing the pineapple juice

1. Marinate Magnolia Chicken in pineapple juice for 30 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, chop the veggies.
3. Heat oil in pan.
4. Sauté onions, garlic, and tomatoes.
5. When onions are transparent, add bell pepper.
6. Add chicken then fry till a bit browned on all sides.
7. Add patis.
8. Pour pineapple marinade and milk.
9. Heat to a boil then simmer till liquid evaporates just enough to leave a sauce.
10. Add pineapple chunks. Simmer till chicken is cooked.

Serve and enjoy!

You can tweak this recipe to suit your taste. Some people add carrots and potatoes. Some skip the patis and use salt and pepper instead.

And gusto ko lang sabihin na kung sino man ang social media manager ng Facebook page ng Magnolia Chicken, I like your sense of humor!

Anyway, mamas, if you have recipes on how I can cook a whole chicken in an oven toaster or on the stovetop, please do share! Thanks!
