Hey Lounger, happy Monday! Kinamatisang Manok is a Filipino dish that means sautéed tomatoes and chicken soup. Kamatis is a Tagalog word for Tomato, while Manok is a Tagalog word for chicken. And yes! It is a dish which has soup on it. So, this recipe is best during winter.
Traditionally, in the Philippines, if you are a lactating mother, it is highly recommended to eat soupy food because it will help in producing more and healthier milk for the baby! So, yes, I recommend this to lactating mothers out there. It’s absolute comfort food!

- You can also use Milk Fish (Bangus) in this recipe instead of chicken meat.
- Instead of a cube, you can use chicken stock. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any chicken stock on hand, so I sorted chicken cubes that I could buy in the grocery store.
- You may adjust the water accordingly for the soup.
I love the gingery, spicy kick of the ground pepper and tomatoes’ sweet-sour taste. Kinamatisang Manok is fantastic during cold winter or rainy days! Try this, and let me know your experience. I’d love to hear from you!
