Lilydale Chicken Pinoy Skewers with Rice

Serves 4
Preparation time 15 minutes+
Cooking time 10 minutes


  • 750gm Lilydale chicken thighs, fat trimmed
  •  ½ cup (125ml) light soy sauce
  • 6 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp kecap manis
  • 1/4 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1/3 cup lemonade or beer
  • Green onions, thinly sliced, toasted sesame seeds, jasmine rice, and steamed Asian greens, to serve


  1. Cut the chicken into long thin slices, about 2cm wide.
  2. In a large snaplock back or shallow glass bowl, combine the chicken, soy sauce, garlic, onion, lemon juice, pepper, sugar, kecap manis, tomato ketchup and the lemonade or beer (this tenderises and adds flavour to the chicken). Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, turning occasionally.
  3. Thread the chicken strips onto the soaked bamboo skewers, reserving the marinade.
  4. Heat a lightly oiled chargrill pan or barbecue over medium-high heat. Cook the skewers for about 10 minutes or until cooked through, turning and basting with the reserved marinade.
  5. Serve skewers sprinkled with green onions and sesame seeds with jasmine rice, and steamed Asian greens.
