Indonesian Grilled Chicken

"This recipe is from a Betty Crocker cookbooklet that I have had since 1995. I made a few changes. It makes a nice summer meal. The recipe says to serve it with couscous; however, I made Recipe #114887 and it made for a very colorful meal."

  1. Really good--we liked this a lot. My only problem was that it seemed a little dry. Like another reviewer I wished there had been a sauce to go with it. I ended up making a little more of the marinade and thinning it out some and using that. For flavor though, very good over all--loved the toasted coconut on top!
  2. I really liked this recipie - followed the whole bit as written and did it on the barbeque. However, once it was cooked, BF suggested it needed a sauce so tonight I am serving the leftovers with one I found already prepared & thought I'd share. It's got most of the main flavoring ingredients already in it. Originally I grilled onion quarters and asparagus along with the chicken and tonight the leftovers are going in a stove-top grill pan. The sauce is called "Iron Chef Orange Sauce, Glaze with Ginger" and I can tell by it's sweetness and slightly spicey flavor that it's going to be amazing with the toasted coconut. Also, I topped my servings with sliced green onions and sauteed sliced, fresh shitake mushrooms to serve alongside. I like the dish both ways but the BF is a sauce lover so he got the nod tonight. Thanks Paula for a great and easy dish with loads of flavor!
  3. WOW!! This is one amazing recipe! I made this to go over a couscous recipe, and the two went so well together! I blanched my raisins in boiling water first, to soften them up and make them plump, and when grilling the chicken I used the peanut/orange marinade to continue brushing on the meat while grilling. This recipe is amazing. I have added this to my catering menu and I served it to dinner clients last weekend, they also loved it, compliments all around! Thanks for posting this, it's now one of my all time favourite Zaar recipes :)
  4. This was great. I used chicken thigh fillets & cooked them on the barbeque. Didn't use raisins & put the bell pepper into a salad. Lovely taste & easy to put together. Thanks Paula for this keeper. Made for ZWT4
  5. I made this with pork chops. This is fabulous!!


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
