Ayam Masak Kicap Recipe

Ingredients / Bahan-Bahan

  • Chicken (Cut into small pieces) / Ayam (Potong kecik) 
  • **Garlic (5 pieces) / Garlic (5 biji)
  • **Red Onion (5 pieces) / Bawang Merah (5 biji)
  • **Ginger (1 inch) / Halia (1 inci)
  • **Red Chili (8 pieces) / Cili Padi (8 biji)
  • Turmeric Powder / Serbuk Kunyit
  • Tamarind / Asam Keping or Asam Jawa
  • Salt / Garam
  • Sugar / Gula
  • Black/Sweet Sauce / Kicap Manis
  • Oyster Sauce / Sos Tiram
  • Cooking Oil / Minyak Masak


  1. Fried your chicken parts as usual with turmeric powder and a bit of salt and cooking oil.
  2. Once the chicken fully cooked, put them aside, put aside some of the cooking oil you used for frying just now. We are going to use the same oil to cook later.
  3. Blend/Mash/Tumbuk all the ingredients with **
  4. Saute/tumis the ingredients blended just now with cooking oil. Saute it till it really cook. We want the chilies to cook well so you won’t get stomachache later.
  5. Put in the black sauce as much as you want (but don’t put in till you can soak your face inside okay, just agak-agak).
  6. Put in sugar and salt to your preference. You can add some oyster sauce or a bit of chili sauce if you want (I basically will put in oyster sauce)
  7. Mix all the ingredients together, if you want your sauce to be a bit watery, you may add in water.
  8. Taste your food first, if you want in to taste sour, add in tamarind. If you think it’s already good, then skip this part.
  9. Lastly, add your chicken! Give it a mix before serving. Done!

Okay there you go. It is hard to make / explain a recipe. I almost give up especially using this new posting wordpress format. I need to mention here that most of the ingredients used doesn’t have to be at the same exact amount. I just agak-agak. Sometimes I add more ginger, sometimes I don’t put in. It really depend on your taste bud.

Tell me your favourite dish you cook during MCO. I am sure many of you explore your hidden cooking talent. Maybe I can learn from you too.

You can watch my cooking on my Instagram or Tiktok account as I don’t think I’m good at writing a recipe.
