I don’t know whether you have tasted the best Ayam Kicap before. After a few trial and errors on creating the right taste for this recipe, I finally have it and would like to share it with you. 🙂
IF you have any other recipe for the dish that could beat mine, then don’t hesitate to give a comment at the end of this post.
What you need:
- 300g chicken breasts/wings
- 1 Large onion – finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves – finely chopped
- 1 thumb sized ginger – chopped into sticks
- 2 Large tomatoes / 5 cherry tomatoes – cut them into segments
- A handful of spring onions/coriander – finely chopped
- Half chicken stock cube
- Sweet Soya Bean Sauce / Kicap manis Kipas Adabi
- 1 tablespoon Sesame Oil
- Vegetable Oil
- Salt and Pepper
- Half cup of water
- Use a claypot or wok to get the best result
First of all, heat your wok or sauce pan at medium heat while you prepare the ingredients. Add in two tablespoon of Vegetable Oil. Once the oil is hot after leaving it for a few minutes, you then add in the onion and garlics. Let it fry for a 1-2 minutes or until soft. After that, you add in the Tomatoes.
Once that, you add the chickens and stir fry with a pinch of salt and pepper for 1- 3 minutes. You then add in sweet soya bean sauce depending how ‘dark’ the chicken you want it be later. What I usually do is, I put in about 1/4 amount of the sauce in its bottle into it so that the sauce covers or surrounds much of the chicken in the wok. Stir around for a bit and then put in the chicken stock and water into the mixture.
At this stage, you are advise to lower the fire and cover the wok for 1/2 an hour or an hour depending how thick the sauce that you want it to be. Don;t forget to stir and check a couple of time to avoid the chicken to stick on the wok base surface. The reason why I lower down the fire is because I want to have the meat inside the chicken to soft and tender, and this also gives enough time for the chicken to suck in all the juices!
Once it is already cooked, garnish it with spring onions or coriander on top.
Have a try with the recipe and let me know how it turned out yea. 🙂
ps: never knew writing a recipe can be so difficult.
