Since I fell in love with Aristocrat’s chicken barbecue. I tried to imitate it and searched some recipes online. Looking at the recipes, it’s like what my mom do to marinate her pork barbecue. The ingredients consists of soy sauce, banana ketchup, 7Up or Sprite, calamansi juice, salt and pepper and that’s it. Okay, the ingredients are not hard to find and it’s all available in our pantry. I also seen some recipes suggesting making peanut sauce out of the marinade so I must try it.
1 cup 7 Up or Sprite
1/2 cup Banana Ketchup
1/4 cup Calamansi Juice
1/4 cup Dark Soy Sauce
1/4 cup Light Soy Sauce
1 head Garlic, grated
1/2 cup plus 3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
2 teaspoons Rock Salt
1 teaspoon Black Pepper
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 cup Peanut Butter
Oil for basting
Clean chicken and pat dry. In a separate bowl, combine 7 Up or Sprite, ketchup, calamansi juice, dark soy sauce, light soy sauce, garlic, sugar, salt and pepper. Mix using a wire whisk until salt and sugar are dissolved. Marinate the chicken wings into the barbecue sauce over night in the fridge. You may also wish to marinate it longer.
Bring out the marinated chicken from the fridge at least an hour before grilling. You may cue your chicken on a stick for easy grilling. Grill over medium heat charcoal until cooked, roughly about 15 minutes. Baste with cooking oil from time to time to avoid drying. When the chicken is done, baste it with the peanut barbecue sauce and grill for another two minutes just to caramelized the peanut barbecue sauce. I flipped the wings several time as not to avoid too much charring of the chicken wings. Remember we marinated our chicken wings with sugar so expect too much charring if the heat is too high.
Serve with java rice and atchara.
