Chicken inasal is a delectable Filipino grilled chicken recipe that is simple but definitely tasty. It is best eaten with rice wrapped in banana leaves. I love eating it with chicken oil (chicken drippings with annatto oil) because it makes the chicken sinfully delicious.
5 pieces chicken thighs or wing and breast parts
3/4 cup white vinegar or lemon juice
1/4 cup garlic, minced
Salt to taste
1/4 cup annatto seeds
1/2 cup hot water
Place the annatto oil, vinegar and garlic in a baking dish or re-sealable bag. Marinate the chicken overnight or up to 1 day in this mixture. Season it with salt.
Steep the annatto seeds and lemongrass in hot water. Set the liquid (annatto oil) aside. After, soak the wooden skewers in water.
Preheat the grill at 350C and then place the chicken in skewers. Cook the chicken for 10-15 minutes per side until soft and slightly charred. Do not overcook, so that the chicken remains juicy. Serve immediately with native lemons, soy sauce and/or vinegar.
