Nilaga refers to anything boiled or stewed. Meat (chicken, pork or beef) is often used with vegetables. Nilagang manok is similar to nilagang baboy. To make this dish, chicken is boiled until tender. Once it is already tender, onions, salt/fish sauce and whole peppercorns are added. Vegetables such as potatoes, cabbageor pechayare also added.
