Today I come with a scrumcpcious Malaysian dish called Ayam Masak Kicap/Chicken in Dark Soy Sauce.Its one of very popular dish amongst Malaysian.These kinda chicken is my all time favorite and its cherish my past.Now I miss my mum alot:(.My mum always best in these.She used to cook us this chicken in two type,both have some slight variation but taste so delicious.
Sadly I rare cook this dish coz my better half not really keen on dark soy sauce because he obiviously doesn't like the smell and sweetness of dark soy sauce.But I'm craving so much lately that I couldn't resist treating myself.So I end up cooked it few days ago by adding scocth bonnet,its gave a nice aroma flovor and extra kick of spicy to the dish. It's absolutely divine,hubby enjoyed too.Ayam Masak Kicap/Chicken in Soy Sauce by Kavi

*Do not fry the chicken too crispy,I normally fried the chicken in medium-low flame,so they cooked perfectly and still keep the succulent texture.
