Recipe: Sizzling Chicken Sisig

Chicken Sisig

Sizzling Chicken Sisig

Sisig is a Pinoy (Filipino) bar snack made with pig parts (snout, ears etc) that are cooked on a sizzling platter, combined with peppers and onions, and eaten with beer. I ran across a quick and easy variation that uses a supermarket rotisserie chicken and tinkered with it till I ended up with a pretty satisfying dish, though I don’t know how authentic it is. UPDATE: made again for a better photo, and did some improvements. Serves 6.

Supermarket rotisserie chicken, 2-3 pounds or so
¼ c lime juice
2 T mayonnaise
A variety of mild-to-hot peppers, to equal the volume of the chicken, chopped or sliced*
one medium red onion*
a few garlic cloves
oil for sautéing
1-2 eggs

Method: Pick the meat off the chicken and tear/cut into bite size pieces. Transfer to a mixing bowl, add lime juice and mayonnaise and mix thoroughly. Allow to sit and marinate while you assemble other ingredients. Chop a mixture of peppers, including a few hot ones but mostly mild, that *roughly equals the volume of your chicken. Chop onion and garlic and add to the mix. Heat cast iron pan very hot, add a little oil, sautée vegetables 2 or 3 minutes till crispy. Add chicken and toss until hot. Meanwhile, cook an egg sunny-side-up in a separate pan. Transfer the egg to the top of the chicken/pepper mixture then serve “sizzling” from the pan, with rice or tortillas.
