How to Cook Kinamatisang Manok for Your Family

Sunday, June 28, 2020

     It has been more than 100 days since quarantine and for us who stayed at home for the longest time (unless we need to go outside for work or essentials), discovering a new hobby or skill became an achievement. I know some are not used to staying at home for three months but those who enjoyed this quarantine made a lot of bonding moments with their loved ones through baking or cooking. As we adapt to the new normal way of living, safety precaution must be observed at all times that's why in order to practice social distancing and minimize contact from the outside world, shopping online is still the best option when buying essentials.

     Did you know that you can purchase groceries via PayMaya online? Yes, that's how convenient to have a PayMaya app installed in your mobile phones especially now that we are avoiding the risk of cash handling. We do our weekly grocery of ingredients like fresh produce, meat, and other food items through online stores and use PayMaya as our payment method. Speaking of cooking, there's one recipe that we enjoyed cooking over and over again because it's made of simple ingredients, easy to cook, and healthy. Sharing the recipe of Kinamatisang Manok after the jump.

Kinamatisang Manok Recipe

     This simple yet tasty recipe is sure to be always on top of our list when deciding what will be on the table for the day. Aside from its simple ingredients, this Filipino dish is at the same time very easy to cook and healthy. This is perfect with steamed rice and dipping sauce of 'patis na may kalamansi at sili' (fish sauce with bird's eye chili).

     I bought all the ingredients using PayMaya online via the PayMaya virtual card. With the help of PayMaya, cooking this recipe is made even more convenient because there’s no need to pay with cash which is not the safest payment option during these days. I like that there are more and more online groceries that are accepting PayMaya as their payment options so restocking for fresh ingredients that can be bought through the wet and dry market or leading supermarkets are made easy at the comfort of our home.

To use your PayMaya for your online orders, all you have to do is follow these easy steps:
