I love sisig. I used to enjoy it at Casa Ilongga at Glorietta back when I was still working there before I moved to New York in 2000. When Alan and I first went home together, we tried everything from the original sizzling sisig to Squid sisig to Chicken sisig. This go around in 2006, we went to Gerry’s Grill and Dencio’s more than just twice and had what else? Sisig..=)
Tonight I made some chicken sisig. I marinated four skinless chicken thighs in Knorr Seasoning and fried them until done, approximately 7 minutes on each side. I cut up the meat and got rid of the bones, then I chopped up two medium onions and four cloves of garlic which I then sauteed in the same pan where I fried the chicken. Once done, I added the chicken so that it can fry to a light crisp, and I added half a can of Liverwurst. Then I poured 1/3 cup of vinegar, and after it released the acidic taste, I seasoned it with salt and pepper. It would’ve been great to put some siling labuyo but I had to keep this plain for the Lolas, so I gave Alan his Mama Sita’s Siling Labuyo ala Tabasco sauce to spice it up.
I dressed up the dish later on with sliced scallions.. a simple yet perfect meal.. and a healthy substitute to the usual pork sisig.
Alan and I enjoyed the meal. .the Lolas were happy. And I don’t think I’m crying myself to sleep tonight anymore — we had a good talk which helped us to bring everything out in the open.
