Annatto Chicken Recipe

Annatto Chicken Recipe

Ingredients :

1.5 kg chicken pieces

1 cup cider vinegar

1.5 cups chicken stock

8 cloves garlic, crushed

1 bay leaf

1 teaspoon cilantro seeds

1 teaspoon black peppercorns

1 teaspoon annatto seeds

3 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons cooking oil


Method :

Use a large bowl and add the garlic, chicken stock, vinegar, cilantro seeds, bay leaf, black peppercorns, annatto seeds and soy sauce. Mix the ingredients well and add the chicken pieces to be marinated in the fridge for 2-3 hours. Transfer the chicken marinade to a large heavy-based pan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes with a lid. Remove pan cover and simmer for a further 10 minutes or until the chicken is tender. Remove chicken pieces and set aside.


Bring the liquid in the pan to the boil again. Cook over high heat for 10 minutes or until the liquid has reduced by half. Using a separate wok, add oil and fry the chicken in batches over medium heat for 5 minutes or until crisp and brown. Pour the reduced vinegar mixture over the chicken pieces and serve with rice.
