Chicken Inasal Using Mama Sita’s Inasal Marinade

There are lots of chicken inasal recipes you can find in the internet and there are many variations too. The ingredients are very basic and simple but sometimes you are in a hurry to cook chicken inasal and you wish there is a premix marinade available in the supermarket. When cooking barbecue, although it’s not hard to make the marinade, using a premix marinade is a lot quicker than making it in a conventional method. It is time saving too.
