I haven't blogged in a good long while since I've actively kept this blog current. Life has been pretty busy with school and other stuffs, so I haven't had a lot of time to write. But I am going to make up for this now.
Wanna try something delish? Today I want to share my awesome new recipe. Last week I cooked an Indonesian dish. It is called AyamKecap (Chicken in sweet soja sauce) in Indonesia.
- 1 kg chicken (wings, thighs or other parts are ok)
- 1 big onion, cut in slices
- 3-4 garlics, cut in slices
- 2 tomatoes, cut in 4 pcs
- 6-8 lemon leafs (daun jeruk)
- 5 tablespoon kecap manis (Indonesian sweet soya sauce)
- Sugar, salt and pepper – to taste
- 1 tbsp chicken stock powder *optional*
about 100ml water
1. In a medium non stick pot, put all chickens - rub every side of chicken with garlic, salt and pepper for about 15-20 minutes. Cover pan with a lid, cooked with low heat until chicken tender.
2. Fry chickens until medium golden brown (half cooked) around 5-10 minutes.
3. In another pan, Saute onion, garlics, and tomatoes until fragrant then add lemon leafs then add half-cooked chicken thigh, cook until set.
4. Season with sugar, kecap manis, salt & pepper, stir it will & let it cooked until the water comes out, reduce the heat.
5. When the water starts reducing add water & let it boiled until the chickens are done.
6. If you like a lot of sauce then don't let it boil too long (always use medium heat).
7. Replace the chicken from the heat then serve it warm with rice.
Have a good meal!
