Serves 3 to 4 | Prep Time | Cook Time 30-60 min


1 x size 14 chicken


½ cup ABC Kecap Manis
⅓ cup coconut milk
4 kaffir lime leaves (thinly sliced)
1 cinnamon quill (crushed)
1 green chilli (finely chopped)
1 tbsp fresh ginger (grated)
½ tsp salt
30g palm sugar
¼ tsp black pepper (freshly ground)
¼ tsp chilli powder
banana leaves (to serve)
lime wedges (to serve)
mango sambal (to serve)

Lay chicken breast side down on a chopping board, using kitchen shears cut along both sides of the backbone.

Lay chicken flat and cut through the breastbone to form two halves.

Turn chicken over and make a cut in each leg and breast in the thickest part.

Place chicken into a shallow dish.

Combine marinade ingredients together and mix well. Pour marinade over the chicken and coat well. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hrs up 24 hrs. Turn chicken occasionally.

Cook chicken on a pre-heated BBQ or Grill basting well for 25–30 mins. If cooking in the oven pre-heat oven 190c and roast for 40 mins, basting occasionally.

Rest chicken 10 mins before serving on a banana leaf with steamed rice, mango sambal and salad. Drizzle with a little extra ABC Kecap manis.
