Chicken Inasal


The chicken inasal is a popular dish from the City of Bacolod, Philippines. Unlike the usual barbecue or grilled chicken that uses soy sauce, this dish uses different ingredients for its marinade and basting sauce that create a unique flavor. The smoked flavor added to it by cooking the meat on a hot charcoal grill imbibes the marinade and makes the dish tastier. The dish is also distinct for its yellowish color brought about by the application of achuete or annatto oil. .. more
