       Chicken Stewed in Coconut Juice or locally known as Chicken Binakol is a popular dish in Batangas, it is similar to Chicken Stewed in Green Papaya (Tinolang Manok) but the coconut meat and juice makes it unique.
            Chicken Binakol requires Native Chicken simmered for several hours because the longer it simmered the more the meat become more tender and releases all the flavors. Compared to regular dressed chicken , native chicken is more tougher, that's why I recommend to Cook Binakol with Native chicken to feel the real taste of the recipe.
