1 kilo chicken (thighs or quarters)
2 pcs lemon grass, crushed and sliced
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
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
cane or palm vinegar
RoniB’s Kitchen Garlic chilli oil
pinch of salt
pinch of ground pepper
pinch of sugar
Combine all ingredients in a bowl except for the butter. Make sure the chicken is covered.
Marinade overnight for best results (or at least 12 hours)
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
Oil your grill to prevent the chicken from sticking
Take the chicken out of the marinade
Discard the marinade
Grill/barbecue the chicken, while basting with the butter-achuete basting mixture
Turn your chicken pieces constantly and move around the grill to ensure even cooking
Serve with rice, atchara, and a dipping sauce.
