2 Tbsp fresh Ginger, minced

2 C peeled and cubed unripened (green) Papaya- can substitute, peeled and cubed chayote squash
2 C fresh Spinach, chopped(optional)
Cooking Instructions
Heat the oil over medium heat in a large pot. Add the onions and saute until transparent, about 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and saute another 2-3 minutes. Add the chicken pieces and saute another 5 minutes to partially cook and lightly brown. Add the fish sauce and stir well. Add water to cover the chicken and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 25-30 minutes, stirring and skimming off fat and scum occasionally. Add cubed papaya and simmer another 5-10 minutes until papaya is tender. Remove from heat, salt and pepper to taste and stir in the chopped spinach. This dish will be soupy when done.
Additional Comments
First had this dish at a little Filipino Mom and Pop Restaurant on Moloka'i. This is local style comfort food to the max!
