Chicken Inasal (roast) is a very popular dish in PI. It’s another family fave growing up. I ate and prepared a lot of roast chicken here in America but I still think something is missing in the taste. So I researched online and “tested” this roast chicken recipe and I was so happy with the result because it’s just what I’ve been looking for! Brings back memories…finally I have a fave roast chicken recipe. The secret ingredient: lemongrass in the marinade! I’m so thankful that a lot of U.S supermarkets have lemongrass in their produce section and that I don’t have to go to the asian market just to get some, so convenient! I just “eyeball” the recipe..
Ingredients and directions:
Place your Chicken parts in a bowl. Add chopped lemongrass,lemon juice/calamansi,vinegar,minced ginger and garlic,salt and pepper(lots of it!) . Marinate for an hour and stir to coat chicken evenly.
Preheat oven 450F, bake chicken for 40-50 minutes (turn once). You can also grill this if you want!
