Adapted from a recipe I found in an Australian recipe booklet - Survival for the Fittest Cookbook. Quick and tasty. NOTE: The bird's eye chilli or Cili Padi is quite spicy, so it's completely optional - depending on your tolerance to heat. I usually use about 5 chillies (I'm quite a chilli-freak!). This can be served as appetizer too, just omit rice and serve the chicken wrapped in lettuce. Or you can wrap with tortilla/stuff it into pita.
