Chicken Inasal Bento

Was pre-cooking some experimental fried chicken wings last night, when I chanced upon a recipe for Chicken Inasal, a grilled chicken dish famous in the Central Philippines. Seeing the opportunity to try it out, I put aside a few pieces of the chicken wings for the fried chicken so I could try cooking Chicken Inasal for today’s bento.

top tier:
Rice and Chicken Inasal. Chicken Inasal is a Visayan (Central Philippines) specialty. It’s basically grilled chicken that has been marinated in a vinegar and garlic-based marinade. It’s usually served with a palm vinegar-garlic-chili dipping sauce called sinamak. We don’t have it at home, so instead, I have a red cane vinegar and soy sauce dipping sauce (in the little yasai plastic squeeze bottle).
