Javanese Fried Chicken
60 mins (prep 20, cooking 40)
11 ingredients

This is a traditional Indonesian recipe for fried chicken, but I have made it a bit healthier - it still tastes good but I have substituted the frying for grilling and steaming the chicken first instead of simmering in coconut milk.I use drumsticks but you could use chicken thighs (with bone) or traditionally a whole chicken disected into small pieces. You do need to leave the skin on the chicken or it won't crisp up when grilled.If you can find fresh tumeric root use about 1 cm piece, it has a more intense flavour
