Grilled Chicken In Soya Sauce (Ayam Bakar Kecap)

Another nice chicken dish loved by my family

Recipe is from Ricke's site with slight modification

What you need:

1 chicken, cut (I didn't use chicken drumlets cos my family is not really into it)

To coat the chicken:
juice of half a large lime
2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Seasonings: (I made 1 1/2 recipe as stated below)
6 shallots
3 cloves of garlic
1 1/2 cm old ginger
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
6 tbsp dark sweet soya sauce (kecap manis)
6 tbsp tomato ketchup
3 tbsp oyster sauce
3 tsp worchestershire sauce
3 tbsp margarine, melted
  1. Coat chicken with lime juice, set aside for 15minutes, rinse with water, tap with kitchen towel
  2. Add salt and pepper, set aside  for 30minutes in the fridge

  3. For the seasonings, put shallots, garlic and ginger in food processor and blend til smooth
  4. Mix with the rest of seasonings
  5. Heat oil in a wok, sautee  seasonings til fragrant, add in water, approximately 1.5L and add in chicken too, boil on medium fire til chicken soft and water lessened and thickened
  6. Arrange chicken on a lightly greased roasting pan, coat chicken with the remaining seasonings, and grill til browned
Very yummy dish, it's even yummier when you put the seasonings on hot rice and eat with the chicken! :)
