 Let us start off with a large pot and your heat set to med/high (6,7).

- Add 1 tbsp of cooking oil. You can use more if sauté looks like it’s drying out.

 Now let’s sauté!

 -Add onions, let that cook for 2 mins, then add ginger and cook both for another 4 minutes. Last add the garlic and sauté until fragrant.

-Toss the chicken wings in and mix it around, then add patis (fish sauce) and mix with the chicken in the pot.

-Turn fire down to medium and cover.... Let's give the chicken wings sometime to let out its natural juices, about 5-7 mins.

 -Next step turn heat back up to med-high, then take off cover and add water over chicken, just enough to cover the chicken.

 -Then add 3 Knorr Bouillon cubes
 -Now let's get the pot back up to a boil. Once boiling add green papaya and turn heat back down to medium for about 15 minutes or till papaya is fork  tender.           

 -The final step is to turn heat to low and stir in Malunggay leaves.
