Bacolod Chicken Inasal(Grilled Chicken)

I remember before I went to New Zealand, there s a new Inasal Restaurant in th Philippines that offers a “rice all you can” when you order one of chicken Inasal meal. I used to have my lunch there especially when I am busy preparing my documents going here in NZ. They serve the Inasal with achara and sinamak(vinegar, chillies & garlic, onions, ginger)….Did you know that chicken is a good source of protein, as it contains very little fat compared to other sources of meat.  However, if you have a severe cholesterol problem, then chicken may not be good for you, as it contains a considerable amount of cholesterol….

Ingredients:(serves 6 person or 6 skewers)

  • 6 pcs thigh and legs (cut in serving size)
  • 6 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1/2 cup vinegar(should be made in the philippines – cane vinegar)
