Lechon Manok, Turbo Broiled Chicken. Here is a fathers day special lechon manok. I love Andok’s lechon manok, it is just roast right to tenderness. The aroma of lemon grass, the sour, salty and succulent chicken meat dip in sweet lechon sauce. Here is the recipe of my broiled chicken similar to the popular Andok’s lechon manok. The secret is do not overcook the chicken. The meat should be tender and succulent.
1 1/2 kilo whole chicken
4-6 stalks tanglad, lemon grass, crushed
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup kalamansi juice
2 tbsp. ground pepper
1 tsp salt
Marinate chicken in soy sauce and kalamansi juice for 4 hours or overnight. Rub chicken skin and cavity with salt and pepper. Stuff chicken cavity with lemon grass. Tuck in neck inside the cavity, roast in turbo broiler at 350 to 400°F for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, occasionally baste skin with butter. Roast until golden brown. Serve with lechon sauce or spicy ketchup.
