WHB - Lechon Manok with Tanglad

Lemongrass (Cymboporon citratus) or Salay as we call it here in the Tagalog region is a fragrant grass commonly used in teas, soups and curries. It's a herb that complements well with poultry, fish, and seafood.

When we used to live in Mindano (they call it Tanglad over there), our "law-uy" or vegetable soup is not complete without.

On special occasions, you can find them stuffed in our roasted chicken.



Rub 1 whole chicken with rock salt inside and out. Set aside. Pound the white portion of the tanglad before putting inside the chicken. Stuff as many tanglad as you like. Rub chicken with soy sauce. Cook in turbo broiler for about 45 minutes at 375F. Rest chicken for 10 minutes before serving.

I have some lemongrass in my herb garden, and this looks like a great way to use it. I've never stuffed it in chicken before, but I can't wait to try it!

I wish I could find some lemongrass here. But noone knows it. This chicken seems so hearty.

Found your blog for the first time today wanted to thank you for sharing this recipe. We have found roasting a whole chicken to be a really inexpensive way to eat several meals, and this gives us a great variation to try at home. Thank you!

Had no idea that's what lemongrass was called in tagalog. I don't actually remember ever cooking with this in PI but I didn't really spend much time in the kitchen back then.
