Chicken Inasal Cooking Instructions:
In a bowl, marinate the chicken overnight in salt, pepper, garlic, lemongrass, lime and lemon juice, and 7-up or Sprite soda. Set aside.
Fry annatto seeds in cooking oil. Let cool, crush, and drain the annatto oil in a bowl. Set aside.
Prepare a mixture for bashing by mixing annatto oil, marinade, and butter. Pan boil for a few minutes and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Skew the chicken and grill over the hot charcoal, brushing it with the mixture once in a while. Grill until done.
You can substitute calamansi for lemon and lime. Adding 1 tablespoon of vinegar to the marinade is good if you intend to preserve the leftover Chicken Inasal in a day or two.
We recommend Kombee Nation Chicken Inasal marinade. Learn More
