Roasted Kicap Chicken with Asian Stuffing

{{totalReview}}
Everybody loves my family recipe of Ayam Masak Kicap (chicken cooked in sweet soy sauce) so I drew inspiration for my festive Roasted Kicap Chicken with Asian Stuffing from these simple yet tasty local flavors. Additionally, when cooking chicken, I always like to incorporate vegetables and carbohydrates to make it a one pot meal that is both easy and wholesome. While this Asian stuffing consists of ingredients you may find in your nasi goreng (fried rice), it is super versatile and could include a combination of any ingredients you like. If you prefer to keep it simple, just season your rice with some salt, pepper and chopped garlic, but you can also add mushrooms and other vegetables to take the flavors to another level. Juicy chicken with a sticky sweet glaze and a savory stuffing, this mouthwatering dish is the perfect centerpiece for your holiday spread.

  3. To roast the chicken

    • In a roasting pan, place sliced onions, potatoes and carrots on the bottom of the pan and sprinkle some salt and pepper.
    • Next, place the chicken on top of the onions. Cover with a foil. 
    • Roast the chicken for about 1 hour 30 minutes and basting every 20 minutes with any extra marinade.
    • Take off the foil for the last 20 minutes of the cooking process to get the skin nice and brown.

    To ensure that your chicken is cooked, do poke it with a sharp end of a knife near the thigh area and check and see if the juices that flow runs clear. If it runs bloody, means your chicken is not cooked just yet and put it back in the oven for a few more minutes.
