Pan Roasted Chicken

Recipe by YummyKitchenTVCourse: Chicken Recipes


  • 1 kg. whole chicken (2 lbs.)

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce

  • 1/3 cup lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 pieces bay leaf

  • 1 thumb sized ginger

  • 6 cloves garlic

  • 1 medium onion

  • 1 stalk tanglad (lemon grass)

  • 1 bunch spring onion

  • 1 piece star anise (optional)

  • 1 1/2 cup water (adjust as needed)


  • Put aromatics inside the chicken cavity. Start with lemon grass. Pound the root part to release the flavor and twist. Insert inside the chicken. Next is the spring onion, twist to release the flavor and insert. Then, set the chicken aside.
  • In a bowl, make the marinade. Combine soy sauce, lemon juice, oyster sauce, brown sugar, ginger, onion, garlic, star anise, ground black pepper, and bay leaf. Crumple the bay leaf to release the flavor. Mix well.
  • Put the chicken in a ziplock bag or deep bowl. Pour the marinade. Marinate at least 1 hour (better if overnight, put inside the refrigerator).
  • After marinating, separate the chicken from the marinade. Reserve the marinade.
  • In a pan, heat some oil for searing. Sear all sides of the chicken until brown.
  • After searing the chicken, pour the reserved marinade. Add water as needed. Cover the pan and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour in low medium heat, turning the chicken every 15 minutes to cook it evenly.
  • Once the sauce starts to reduce, baste the chicken for uniform color. Do the basting occasionally until the sauce reduced.
  • After 1 hour or once the sauce has reduced, remove the chicken from sauce. Let it rest for 10 minutes before cutting.
  • Serve with spicy toyo-mansi dip (calamansi and soysauce dip)

  • Cooking time may vary depending on the size of the chicken. In this recipe, I used 1 kilogram chicken, approximately, 2 lbs. chicken and the cooking time is 1 hour.
  • If you are using larger sized chicken, add more water as you simmer to cook the chicken thru its bones.
  • To make sure that the chicken is completely cooked, check with meat thermometer. To check, insert a thermometer into the thickest section of the chicken to check if it is at 80ºC or 175ºF.
