Inasal Manok -Filipino grilled chicken

Inasal Manok

Neil
This is my take on a delicious Filipino dish for grilled chicken, you can use any parts of the chicken, but the legs and thighs are always the best option for the most flavorful and juicy chicken. You can cook this recipe in any grill, but it is always best if you can barbecue and sear with and over charcoal.

Course Sauce
Cuisine American
Servings 1 ham

Equipment

  • 1 small sauce pot

Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 1 packet ham glaze less 2 TBSP
  • 1 shot bourbon whiskey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Instructions
 

  • over medium heat stir to dissolve and bring to a boil
  • reduce heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes to reduce
  • remove from heat and allow to cool down before glazing ham.

Video

Notes

Recipe for the glaze: (while the ham is smoking) in a small pot on medium heat, I added 1/4 cup of apple cider the rest of the ham glaze packet 1 shot of bourbon 1 tsp of cinnamon 1tsp of apple pie spice stir to dissolve and bring to a boil. set the heat to low and simmer to reduce for 10-15 minutes. allow to cool and pour over and baste on the ham. add about 1/4 cup of brown sugar to the top of the ham for that crunchy edge. pre-heat an oven to roast at 450F In the middle rack add the ham and roast until the sugar bubble and brown on the top. this should only take 5-10 minutes, so check frequently to make sure the sugar doesn’t burn. This smelled like apple pie and came out delicious. I hope you get a chance to try this recipe.
