THE RECIPE

Chicken Inasal

Introduce yourself to Filipino street food

Filipino food hasn’t yet hit the mainstream but if you’re like us, after trying this recipe you’ll seriously wonder why. The pungent flavors of garlic, ginger, and lemongrass are ground together with salty (soy sauce) and tangy (lime juice or the traditional calamansi fruit) and the whole marinade gets a beautiful red hue from the addition of annato oil. After a rub down, the chicken legs are grilled and glazed at the end with a honey and butter mixture that creates a delicious, caramelized crust on the outside. Seriously, how bad can that be?
