Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Chicken thighs — For a healthier option, you can use skinless chicken breasts instead of thighs. However, thighs tend to be more tender and flavorful.
  • Kecap manis — If you can't find kecap manis, you can substitute it with a mixture of equal parts soy sauce and brown sugar.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a spicier version, add extra chili powder or chopped red chilies to the marinade.
  • To achieve a glossy finish, brush the chicken with the marinade while cooking.
  • If you prefer a thicker sauce, mix 1 teaspoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water and add it to the sauce during the simmering process.
  • For added freshness, squeeze some lime juice over the cooked chicken before serving.
  • Customize your dish by adding vegetables like bell peppers, onions, or broccoli to the stir-fry.
