Wanted Chicken Inasal Recipe

Anyone who has a fool-proof chicken inasal recipe, please share!!! I beg you.

I cooked chicken inasal yesterday but it was way short of the inasal taste. I searched for inasal recipes online.  I saw 3 potential recipes. Combined them together and here is the result.

I don't know what's wrong.  The taste is "almost" like inasal but it lacks something else and I can't figure out what's the missing taste (huuuuuwwwwwaaaaaa)

Here's the recipe I used and the cooking procedure I did. I didn't grill the chicken over charcoal, i just grilled it on top of our stove.

Please feel free to revise it and fill-in that missing something.  Pleeeeeaaaasssseee.

I love inasal and I really want to learn how to cook it (sniff sniff)
