Lusog Notes

This local dish is high in niacin which helps keep the digestive system healthy. It is also a source of calcium needed for strong bones and teeth.

Chef's Tip

Rubbing the chicken with rock salt removes the slime found naturally on the skin. Be sure to rinse well so as not to leave the salt on the skin which will make the broth too salty.
