Happy Fiesta Friday to everyone!!! Although today is not completely a work-free day for me, I will not miss joining Fiesta Friday. Work this week was really exhausting, like I wanna relax under the water (and when I said water, I meant the ocean)… Oopps! I cannot swim! I will drown and I will
surely probably die (if no one will save me)! Ahhh! Never mind! I’ll just let myself enjoy the party today…
Filipino BBQ in the Philippines is everywhere. Well, it’s not like you can find it as soon as you get out of your house. But, at least you can find them somewhere in the neighborhood. (Because your neighbor is cooking!) And you can smell how wonderful they are! They are usually being sold during afternoon time. But what if I want them on breakfast? 😀 (Seriously? BBQ on breakfast?) My friend even told me ‘Uh, this should be served for lunch or dinner. I told her ‘Ahh! No problem, I can serve this anytime!’ So that was the reason why I did make this yummy BBQ… also, to satisfy my cravings! (When will these cravings end?)
I was supposed to use chicken thighs, but I had only chicken breasts… and I feel the need to make chicken BBQ.
Ingredients: Instructions: For the BBQ Sauce: Mix ¼ cup soy sauce, 1/3 cup banana ketchup (or sweet chili sauce), ½ tbsp lemon and sliced green chili. See source recipe here.

This really did satisfy my craving for BBQ.
I should have used chicken thighs! I should have taken the effort to go out and buy chicken thigh because BBQ’s are yummier with skin on! I should have!! I have told you that I am not much of a fan of chicken breasts, but I still enjoyed this… especially with the sauce I have made. The chicken pieces looked sad (they talked to me) as BBQ sauce is missing and I don’t want to use the store-brought sauce. So I went back to the pantry and looked for something I could mix up. And tadaaa… the sauce was…
Ohhh!! I just loved it. And my friend who was with me during that day? She loved it and she loved the BBQ-d (barbequed – acceptable short cut?) chicken breasts – and that made me really happy!
The good news is… I am bringing these over at Fiesta Friday at Angie’s place at The Novice Gardener. Apart from the chicken BBQ, I also brought this salad and scrambled egg with olives and bell peppers as a bonus. 😀 (Opps! Sorry for the Olives, Melissa!)
I hope you enjoy this and have a fabulous Fiesta Friday! Enjoy the weekend and have fun!
PS: If you are not a fan of outside grilling, you can try this amazing trick to do it inside your home. But, if you have a smoke alarm, be careful! 😛
