Braised Chicken In Soy Sauce (Ayam Masak Kecap)

Easy dish cooked in pressure cooker, resulting in a soft and flavourful meat. Nice to eat with a bowl (or two) of fluffy hot rice :)

Recipe is modified from Signora pressure cooker recipe book
What you need:
1 free range chicken, cut into parts
1/2 yellow onion, sliced
5 cloves of garlic, minced
about 6 tbsp dark sweet soya sauce (kecap manis)
1 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp chicken stock powder
salt, pepper, sugar to taste
2 tbsp butter
about 1-2 tbsp water
  1. Melt butter and sesame oil in a pan of preheated pressure cooker for sauteeing (mine is "meat/bean")
  2. Sautee onion and garlic til fragrant, add in chicken, kecap manis, water and other seasonings. Mix well
  3. Cover the pressure cooker, press "cancel" then press "chicken" button and let it does its work
  • Each pressure cooker has its own unique function, please study yours first before using
  • This recipe can be cooked using normal wok over stove

I served this chicken dish with a simple stir fry carrot and cabbage. Simply sautee minced garlic in a wok with a little oil, add in cabbage, carrot and tomato, also a little water, let boil and simmer for a few mins til vegetables are soft (not too soft though) and season with salt and pepper
