Straits Chinese (Nyonya) Chicken

Straits Chinese (Nyonya) Chicken created by dianegrapegrower

'Inche Kabin' is the inspiration for this oven roasted chicken. Inche Kabin, a favourite pre-marinated chicken dish among the Babas and Nonyas of Straits Settlements in old Malaya (now Malaysia), is traditionally double fried. This version would suit those who prefer not to deep-fry in their kitchens. (You may use pieces of a whole chicken if you wish.)

    Really tasty! used BS chicken breasts, but coated in panko crumbs just before baking to retain moisture. Tender and delicious!
