Chicken Kinasal of Judy Ann Santos

In the television series entitled Ysabella where Judy Ann Santos played the lead character as a cook who inherited a recipe from her mother. The story of course revolved around this chicken recipe.

Chicken Kinasal of Judy Ann


1 kilo of chicken cut in serving portions

1 spoon of tabon tabon fruit (hydrophytune orbiculatum) A fruit native in Northern Minadanao and Camiguin, this fruit is normally use in preparing Kilawin as this removes the pungent smell of the fish (langsa) (Note: this is an endangered species already so finding is quite hard. The lime could replace this :-)

2 tablespoons of honey

1 tablespoon of bagoong balayan (fish pasta)

2 dayap or lime juice (you can replace this with lemon or kalamansi)


Mix all the ingredients and marinade for 24 hours. The next day steam the chicken for thirty minutes. Then in a frying pan fry the chicken until its golden brown.
