Sari Filipino Chicken Lechon: Elevating the Classic Lechon Manok

When you think of  Chicken Lechon or “Lechon Manok“, the first brands that come to mind might be Andok’s, Baliwag, Chooks to go, and Senor Pedro. These vendors sell your no-frills Chicken Lechon roasted over a hot spit with three factors in mind strong flavors, easily prepared, and affordability.

Chicken Lechon is simple yet there are a lot of flavor elements that dwell into it, marinate it with staple Filipino household ingredients such as ginger, bay leaf, red onions and garlic and leave it overnight. Then before roasting add a bunch of lemongrass and green onions filling the cavity of the chicken.  This combination adds overwhelming flavors to the chicken inside and out. Crispy torched skin and juicy center that’s typically dipped in a lechon sauce. It’s something that every Filipino would have eaten once in their life.

In different cultures they prepare this in different ways, one that closely resembles ours is the Portuguese Peri-Peri Chicken. Peri-Peri or also known as Piri-Piri gets its name from the African bird’s eye chili peppers. In Portugal, they would marinate a whole chicken using select spices such as lemon, olive oil, chili, paprika, and garlic. They would then grill it and have a special Peri Peri sauce on the side. This spicy sauce became famous in chains such as Nando’s that they eventually would up adding sides and other flavors of sauces on the side.

 

WHAT MAKES SARI DIFFERENT

Sari Filipino Chicken Lechon takes your homegrown Filipino dish and raises it. They use the traditional way of marinating and cooking the Chicken Lechon Filipino Style then serve it with a number of sauces and sides.

 

 

They use locally sourced ingredients and flavors and takes the Lechon Manok experience to another level. While maintaining the usual sauces such as sinamak(Spiced vinegar), soy garlic, and chicken that you usually find in chicken restaurants around the Philippines. They add a number of dipping sauces like the Sari Special Sauce, Filchuri, Green Sili, Labuyo Garlic and the Mango Ketchup while keeping around the classic lechon sauce.
