Is It Possible to Cook Grilled Chicken Inasal Without a Grill?

Yes, you can still enjoy Chicken Inasal’s flavors without a grill. To replicate the smoky taste, marinate chicken pieces in a mixture of calamansi juice, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and annatto oil for at least an hour. Then, pan-fry the marinated chicken over medium-high heat until cooked through, occasionally basting with the remaining marinade for added flavor. While it won’t have the same charred exterior as grilled, it will still be juicy and flavorful. Adjust seasoning according to taste preferences. Serve with steamed rice and a side of atchara for a satisfying meal.
