1 kilo chicken (thighs or quarters)

2 pcs garlic cloves, crushed

3 tbsp ginger, minced

1/2 cup cane vinegar

2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1 tbsp sugar

Oil for brushing the grill

Basting Sauce

4 tsp achuete seeds (lightly fry in 150ml oil until oil turns orange in colour. Strain and discard seeds)

100 grams salted butter

1 tsp salt

Dipping Sauce

soy sauce

cane or palm vinegar

RoniB’s Kitchen Garlic chilli oil

How to

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl except for the butter. Make sure the chicken is covered.

  2. Marinade overnight for best results (or at least 12 hours)

  3. When ready to cook, heat your grill or barbecue. Coal-fired barbecue is better to achieve the smoky flavour but a grill pan works as well

  4. Oil your grill to prevent the chicken from sticking

  5. Take the chicken out of the marinade

  6. Discard the marinade

  7. Grill/barbecue the chicken, while basting with the butter-achuete basting mixture

  8. Turn your chicken pieces constantly and move around the grill to ensure even cooking

Serving suggestion

Serve with rice, atchara, and a dipping sauce.

For the Dipping Sauce

Combine all the dipping sauce ingredients. Adjust the quantity of soy, vinegar, and garlic chilli oil based on your taste.

Chicken Inasal is chargrilled chicken. Inasal is an Ilonggo term that means 'chargrilled' or 'roasted meat'. A great barbecue recipe to add to your repertoire.
