Kulinarya - Filipino Barbeque

I'm finally back. I’ve been away from the blogging world for a few weeks. It’s been so busy and I actually got sick and lost my taste buds. It’s not a very good feeling, that’s for sure.  

I thought I would kick of my first post for June with Kulinarya Cooking Club's June Theme which is Filipino Barbeque.  Thanks to Peachy and Ninette for picking this exciting theme.

The recipe below is just my own version of a quick and simple marinade. It’s sweet and delicious, especially when cooked the traditional Filipino way which is normally on top of coals.


Filipino Chicken Skewers


4 chicken thigh fillets (cut into small cubes)
1 teaspoons brown sugar
½ cup soy sauce
½ cup tomato sauce or banana ketchup
1 clove of garlic (crushed)
juice from 2 calamansi (calamondin)
a pinch of chilli flakes (optional)
soaked bamboo sticks

1. In a bowl combine the sugar, soy, tomato sauce or ketchup, garlic, calamansi juice and chilli flakes. Stir until the mixture is well incorporated.

2. Add the chicken pieces to the marinade and put it in the fridge for a few hours.

3. Take the marinated chicken out of the fridge and put 4 chicken pieces onto each bamboo skewers.

4. Put the chicken skewers on the barbeque and cook for 4 to 5 minutes each side. The small chicken pieces cook really quickly. I normally cook it until it is a little charred for extra flavour.
Serve with hot rice.
