Filipino Pesang Manok or Boiled Chicken with Vegetables Recipe

Pesang Manok or Boiled Chicken with Vegetable is a typical Filipino dish that is so easy to cook and healthy as well as it includes vegetables such as pechay, cabbage, spring onion leaves and potatoes. This is somewhat similar to Tinolang Manok but the latter utilizes papaya or sayote, fresh chili leaves and is sauteed in cooking oil. My husband had requested the dish for a variation of the usual dishes that requires cooking in oil.  But all the same, he finds hot soup dishes to have a soothing effect on him after a cold winter day long hours of work.
