Chicken Barbecue, Pinoy-style

I suppose every family has its own recipe for barbecue.  I never really had one, maybe because it was far too easy to buy delicious barbecue...  but hubby requested a "healthier" barbecue, so I thought of boneless, skinless chicken thighs... 

700 grams boneless, skinless chicken thighs

2/3 cup banana (chili) ketchup
1/2 cup Sprite or 7-Up
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon ground pepper
8 cloves garlic, smashed
more salt, as preferred (about 1/2 tablespoon sea salt for me)

Slice the chicken into cubes and marinate at least overnight.  Thread chicken on skewers and grill over charcoal.  Baste with marinade mixed with 1/4 cup chili ketchup and 1 tablespoon oil.

The flavor of this dish is a bit subtle, which is how we like it.  For a more intense flavor, add more salt and banana chili ketchup, or even chopped chilli.
