Filipino Pininyahang Manok Recipe Video

Pininyahang Manok literally translates to Chicken with pineapple. Chicken slices are marinated in pineapple juice then stewed with pineapple chunks. Aside from pineapples, secondary ingredients such as carrots, bell pepper, and milk make-up the dish. There are some variations of this dish and the obvious difference is the use of fresh/evaporated milk over coconut milk or vice versa. I would say that both variations will yield good results though I used fresh milk in this recipe because that is the style that I grew-up eating and it never ceases to give me that nostalgic feeling.
