Cencalok Chicken

Difficulty

  • Preparation
    5 minutes
  • Total
    30minutes
INGREDIENTS
    Half a chicken, chopped
    1 tbs cencalok
    5 Kaffir lime leaves
    1/2 turmeric leaf
    1 onion, sliced
    2 red chillies, sliced
    1 lime
METHOD

Rub cencalok on the chicken and arrange it in a steamer.

Tear and scatter kaffir lime leaves and turmeric leaf on top.

Steam for about 20-25 minutes until chicken is tender.

Before serving scatter chillies and onions on top and squeeze some lime.

Alternatively you can steam the chicken on it’s own first and once done toss it with the rest of the ingredients.

This gives it a more powerful punch.
