Indonesian grilled chicken. The Sambal chicken can be quickly be grilled in whole pieces, or if you have more time, cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces, then skewer. Sambal Olek, an Indonesian style red chile paste is available at most grocery stores and it's the secret to this great flavor. I will often double the recipe, because the refrigerated leftover chicken keeps really well and tastes incredibly good, cold.
Heat up oil in a large wok or pan, and fry off the spice paste until fragrant and dry. Add the chicken and make sure to seal the chicken in the spice paste.

For our Indonesian Grilled Chicken recipe we've got a simple spice base consisting of Garlic, Chilli, Shallots and Lemongrass. So Tasia, we're gonna blitz this up into a smooth paste. Alright, let's make the spice base. I have a weakness for Indonesian grilled chicken (or Ayam Bakar as you will often find on Indonesian menus) – the char and smokiness from the caramelized chicken skin, the sweet aromatic spices, the distinctive taste of kecap manis (sweet soy sauce) combined with the heat from the savoury sambal belacan, all complemented with a mound of steamed white rice.
Indonesian grilled chicken instructions
- Clean the chicken, marinate with lemon juice and a bit of salt for about 15 minutes. wash and dry..
- Turn the wok on high heat, put all the chicken, all the blends ingredients, kaffir and bay leaves and mix well till all corporated.Move the heat to medium. Add water, kecap manis, mix well. If possible, put the chicken with boned in the bottom of the wok..
- Now close the wok with lid on medium heat. leave this and check every 20-25 minutes. This should take about 45 minutes (3 time checking). When you check, try use spatula to scrap the bottom of the wok, making sure it does not stick. When the water reduce to half, dont close the wok. and let it simmer for another 20 minutes – or till no really thicken. sprinkle some lemon juice, and let it cool. do not throw the remaining sauce, keep this together with the chicken.
- You can put this in fridge and it will last about 3-4 days. you can also freeze it..
- When you want to serve, take it out and grill (or fry) them for about 15-20 minutes. I like to smear the chicken with the left over sauce during the grill..
Cook the honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger root in a small saucepan over low heat until the honey is melted. Add the limes to the foil and grill the chicken until the juices run clear when an inner thigh is. I used both, as my husband prefer breast filled. This is one of my favorite. You can made this without chilli.
