This week, we take everyone’s favourite family dinner – a roast chicken – and give it a modern Asian makeover, with Chinese, Thai, Indonesian and Malaysian variations on this classic meal.
Classic Indonesian ingredients such as kecapmanis, coconut milk, palm sugar and kaffir lime combine to create a luscious marinade for this Indonesian roast chicken. Serve it with steamed rice, lime wedges and a tangy mango salsa.
When you want a roast but time isn’t on your side, why not try this recipe for satay-roasted chicken breast? Serve with salads greens and steamed rice for an easy midweek dinner or light lunch.
You’ll also need those butterflying skills for this North-Eastern style roast. For this country-style chicken, use your barbecue like an oven by heating it with the lid down. Serve in true Isaan style with Thai sticky rice and som tum salad.
