Ingredients:  
2 tbsp of Olive Oil
5 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
1 onion, thinly sliced
One 2 inch piece of ginger, peeled and sliced into thin strips
4 chicken thighs or breasts, preferably bone in, cut in halves
1 1/2 tsp salt
8 c of water
1 green papaya (chayote), peeled, deseeded, and cut into bite size pieces
2 tbsp fish sauce (plus additional for dipping if desired)
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/2 c spinach or any greens as desired

Directions:
Directions:
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a pot over medium heat and saute the garlic until lightly browned. Add the onion and ginger and saute for 10 minutes. Rub the chicken with salt. Add the chicken with the garlic, onions, and ginger and saute for another 10 minutes or until the chicken is lightly browned.

Add the water to the pot and bring to a boil. Add the papaya once it comes to a boil for 20 minutes or until the papaya is tender. Add the pepper and spinach. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.

Serve hot with steamed rice and fish sauce, if using. The longer you let the chicken boil with the onions, garlic, and ginger the more flavorful.

If you love vegetables, add any variety you like. I like to add more of the papaya. The broth is warming and soothing on a cold winter day!

Personal Notes:
This is one of my childhood Filipino favorites my mom cooked when i was a small child. In fact, this is one of the first filipino dishes babies are fed when they begin to eat solid foods. My son loves it just as much as I do. I hope you enjoy it.
