    This is one of the easiest and most delicious chicken soups to make. Just like the mythical chicken soups of other cultures, this soup is good for restoring one’s health. By the time we got to Irosin, our photographer, Neal, was very sick and debilitated. I asked the kitchen staff to make a chicken tinola with lots of ginger, green papaya, chile, and malunggay leaves; within a few hours Neal was back on his feet.
