Tinolang manok (ginger-flavored chicken soup with green papaya and chili leaves)

There must be some truth to the belief that even hot soup can refresh the body on summer days. I cooked and published the recipe for this pot of chicken tinola exactly five years ago on a day which, in the tradition of Philippine summers, must have been as terribly hot as it was today. So, I am republishing this post — we can all use a respite from the heat by enjoying a light delicious soup. »
