Filipino BBQ Chicken

Stella Star Ingredient: Pickled Relish


  • 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, sliced into wide strips
  • 3/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup lemon lime soda
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pickled relish (Stella Star Ingredient):
  • 1/2 cup carrots, shredded
  • 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, sliced or minced
  • 1 jalapeño, thinly sliced
  • 1 habanero, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • Steamed rice for serving


  1. In a large bowl, combine all the BBQ ingredients. Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  2. Meanwhile, make the pickled relish: in a bowl, mix vinegar, sugar, and salt together. Thoroughly mix in the rest of the relish ingredients. You can save any extras in a glass container. Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 1 hour, to prevent catching on fire on the grill later.
  3. Skewer marinated chicken. Grill on medium-high heat, turning occasionally to equally char and cook all sides.
  4. Serve with steamed white rice and the pickled relish. Serve with lemons, lime, habanero
