Filipinos love everything roasted! We all know the classic and Filipino favorite lechon baboy or roasted pig, but did you know that there is also a chicken version? The lechon manok or a direct translation would be roasted chicken, is also a loved Filipino dish that everyone enjoys!
Lechon manok was first introduced to the Filipinos back in the mid-1980s when someone hooked up a bunch of skewers to a bicycle chain and gears to roast whole chickens over a coal-lit stove. After that sight, it went to take on the Philippines by storm and a lot of inasal places were popping everywhere all over the country.
Now, it is a staple dish in Cebu and every area you would visit has a couple of lechon manok stores roasting from morning until evening!
