Chicken Halang Halang is a Filipino dish that is popular in Visayas and Mindanao regions in the Philippines. “Halang” literally means chilli hot hence a lot of chillies will be used in this dish, but for those who don’t like it hot you can always adjust the amount of chillies you want to use. There are several versions of this dish one is the one with coconut milk, some don’t use coconut milk but has more chillies and ginger, others also cook the dish until it dries out but one thing remains the dominant taste of ginger and chillies.
