Sizzling sisig made with chicken and crispy chicken skin! Spicy, and savory with calamansi, onions, and chilies. You'll be surprised how delicious it is. A perfect alternative to pork sisig best enjoyed as pulutan (beer match) or as a main dish for lunch or dinner.
Separate the chicken skin from the meat. Set aside.
Slice chicken meat into strips. Place in a bowl and add the rest of the marinade ingredients; include the chicken liver, if using. Marinate for 15-30 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Remove chicken from the marinade and garlic bits. Discard the marinade. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan over medium heat. Pan-fry chicken on each side for 4 to 5minutes on each side. Do this in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Transfer to a plate and let it cool.
Pan-fry the chicken liver in the same pan. About 1 minute on each side. Chopped the cooked chicken and liver into small pieces. Set aside.
Season chicken skin with salt and pepper. In another pan, heat ⅓ cup of oil over medium-high heat. Fry chicken skin until crispy. Let it cool then cut into pieces.
Serve sisig (see note 4)
Heat oil in a sizzling plate or cast iron pan over high heat. Add the chicken, half of the onion, garlic, and chilies. Cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
Pour the liquid seasoning and calamansi juice. Season with black pepper. Turn off heat then top mayonnaise and remaining red onions. Sprinkle the crispy chicken skin. Serve immediately and enjoy with a glass of beer or your drink of choice. Enjoy!
Chicken - use chicken thigh or chicken breast or a combination of both. You can also use leftover chicken pieces from roasted chicken/lechon manok) or baked chicken.
Calamansi – also known as calamondin. It can be substituted with lemon or lime but the flavor difference will be noticeable.
Liquid seasoning - you can use Maggi, Knorr, or Braggs.
Use a regular stainless skillet if the sizzling plate and or cast iron pan is not available. Serve sisig in the same pan or transfer to a serving dish.
