Chicken Tinola

My godson Caleb and his parents visited us last week. My kids were really very happy to have visitors in our house. They brought Tinola to cook for dinner and I cooked my mothers adobo recipe. Mushroom and rice wash are all new to me for a tinola and the taste was really good. Thank you Van for sharing with me your recipe.
