Stir-fried Chicken Cencalok

by Honey on Thu, December 16, 2010

Generally this dish is made with pork but we subbed it with chicken. Debbie Teoh’s recipe gave the initial inspiration but we modified it a little to include ginger and more chillies!

This is a lazy person’s dish.

Serves 4 people

Cencalok and chicken is a great combination.Don't knock it before you try it.
