Rellenong Manok is a festive Filipino dish which is basically a roasted stuffed boneless chicken. Yes it’s boneless, but only in the cavity, wings and legs still have bones intact.
The name Rellenong Manok iterally means “Stuffed Chicken”. “Relleno” is the Spanish word meaning filled or stuffed; and “Manok” is the Tagalog word for chicken. So for this festive dish the body of the bird is painstakingly de-boned and only the wings and legs remain intact. Because of the stuffing the chicken retains it’s shape when done, giving it a very nice presentation at any fiesta table.
The chicken is de-boned by cutting the breast side, removing the bones and sewing them back together. Another way would be by removing the bones by hands carefully from the cavity without cutting the chicken. Cooking this dish is best suited for special occasions because the procedure involved is a little tedious. De-boning the chicken requires some skill and patience. Stuffing it with the meat mixture is easy enough but, you have to insure that the chicken is well sewn so the contents won’t spill.
This is my version of Rellenong Manok (Stuffed Chicken) Filipino Recipe.
