Our Christmas and New Year Feast

Happy New Year! I’m sure your tummy had its fill of yummy feasts during the past holiday season. Honestly, I and the boys gained pounds when my sister-in-law and her family came from the province and stayed with us for a week. Ate Cel is a certified cook and she has a catering business in Naga City. That’s why, when she’s with us, it’s almost always fiesta food at home!

I realized that the Chicken Inasal I tasted here in Manila is not the same as the ones they served us in Manokan Country. It’s more delicious and exciting because we used our bare hands in eating!

Since the inasal fastfood restaurant near our place does not appeal to us anymore, I searched the web for Chicken Inasal recipes to serve at home. I was able to chance upon this recipe. It wasn’t only written by Chef Heny Sison herself but it’s also the same recipe that Nene Rose II, the carinderia we went to at the Manokan Country, uses in their Chicken Inasal.

Here’s the recipe in preparing authentic Bacolod Chicken Inasal.
