Bar-B-Que Chicken with sweet soy sauce (Ayam Bakar Kecap) recipe

This is is my favourite mother use to prepare this food in special moment in my family.we are calling ayam bakar kecap,I want to share this recipe with all of you,wish, you will like this food.
First, prepare the chicken marinade:
  • dried chili flakes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 shallots (bawang merah)
  • 1 tea spoon galangal powder (langkuas)
  • 3 table spoon candle nuts powder (kemiri)
  • 1 tea spoon turmeric powder (kunyit)
  • 4 dried basil leave (laos)
  • 1/2 cup sweet soy sauce (kecap manis)
  • 2 table spoon kaffir lime juice (jeruk purut), or otherwise, 4 kaffir lime leaves
  • salt and pepper to season
  • 1 whole chicken
  • 3 dried leaves (daun salam)
  • Chilli paste (sambel trasi)
you can use “cobek” this the name of traditional grinder, grind all the ingredients until they form a smooth paste.  If you prefer, you can use your food processor or chopper to achieve the same … I just like doing it the traditional way better. If you have a whole chicken, cut the it in six pieces.  Put the chicken in a large wok and rub the marinade onto the chicken.  Let the chicken be marinated for about an hour.  At the end, add between a quarter to a half cup of water into the wok and heat the wok. Ensure that you turn the chicken over a few times to prevent burning.  Once the liquid thicken a bit, turn off the heat and grill the chicken for about 15-20 minutes, turning them over half way can add cucumber or cabbage than chilli paste ,let  Enjoy!
