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!

1 whole chicken (or 10 drumsticks)

Sweet soy sauce
