Halal Food Recipe Series : Chicken with Soy Sauce
AMuslima Halal Food Series.
O’Muslima, do you want to go on a culinary adventure? Today is a great day for a twist on the traditional Americana BBQ chicken drumsticks. Today we are bringing you a sticky sweet taste from the Southeast Asia. We replaced the molasses or in some cases brown tangy BBQ sauce with a sweet / salty thick soy base (oh totally Halal!) soy sauce. It’s name? Kecap (pronounced: khey-chap). The Kecap taste between salty soya sauce and thick sweet molasses.
So let’s give this sweet recipe a try!
Here is what we need:
1 whole chicken (or 10 drumsticks)
Sweet soy sauce
I. Cut into small pieces/slice:
1 onion (big size or 5 small sizes)
1 lemon grass (cut it in half length and crushed)
2 bay leaves
3 cm galangal (peeled and crushed)
5 cloves garlic
2 red chillies (if desired)
3 cm ginger
5 pc macadamia nut (hazelnut)
Heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil in a wok and sweat all the spices I until you can smell the spices. Then, add spices II, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken until brown. Add 5 tbsp of sweet soy sauce or more, stir until all mixed. Serve the chicken accompanied by rice.
Enjoy! Don’t forget to give us feedback.
