    Coasty's Note:

    This is an Indonesian chicken dish - I got the recipe from a cook at a roadside cafe in central Java. While some of the ingredients may be hard to find ie the ketup manis & palm sugar it is worth the effort.

      A delightfully unusual dish. This is a perfect blend of sweet and spicy flavors. The pepper gave it more heat than I expected; next time I may cut back a little. Thanks so much for posting! Made for ZWT6.

      My dh & I really enjoyed this sweet spicy treat Coasty. Made exactly as written, once I found a recipe to make the ketup manis(which turned out to be a very sweet thick spicy soya sauce). The chicken was lovely served with steamed rice and Hoecakes. They complimented each other perfectly. Thanks for sharing this exotic dish. It was quick and easy to throw together with great results. Made for Pac 2010 :)

      This was a lovely meal with quite a bit of kick from the pepper. I will cut back on the pepper for my family but this may be perfect for lovers of heat. Reviewed as part of Fall PAC 08
