Bopis na manok is the chicken version of bopis. This is a dish composed of chicken innards that were either minced of chopped finely and sauteed in aromatics such as garlic, onion, and ginger before being stewed in vinegar and water. Vegetable such as carrots, bell pepper, and daikon radish are also used in this recipe.
Bopis can be enjoyed as a main dish. It is best eaten with newly cooked white rice. It also makes a good pulutan. I like my bopis extra spicy. I add more chopped chili for this reason. Tabasco sauce also goes well with this dish.
Note that the gizzard needs to really be tender before cooking it with the other ingredients. This was the reason why I used a pressure cooker for it. The heart, on the other hand, is not as tough. You can use a regular pot to boil it.
Ginger, daikon radish, and tomato are optional ingredients. This means that you can still cook bopis without these. However, I think that these makes a good addition to the dish because it helps make it taste better.
While the main ingredient in pork bopis is the lungs. I did not include chicken lungs to this chicken counterpart because it not readily available in my location. Furthermore, I prefer this dish to be simple.
