Before you (my non-Malaysian friends and readers) ask, it's a fried chicken dish which we called "Ayam Penyet", literally translated as "Smashed or Pressed Chicken", because the chicken is smashed or pressed to make it soft before it is fried.



It's my second time I am having this Ayam Penyet because it's SO DELICIOUS!!! Smileys Well, I bought it from the Ramadan bazaar @ Section 14, PJ. According to the owner of the stall, it's marinated for a few hours in a blend of spices, then half-boiled and fried to certain crispiness. Now how yummy could that be!



I guess the important thing in the eating of Ayam Penyet is its sambal. It is a blast; not too sweet and not that sour but blazing HOT! *face and ears turned red with sweat running through my face* Smileys

Hmmm, does anyone have any good recommendations on where to go eat Ayam Penyet besides this?

i remember eating a tasty chicken like that during a party, same procedure they marinated it long enough and half boiled it to make the chicken absorb more taste and then fried for crispy perfection! How I wish I had the day to prepare this dish for my big baby's bday! :(

Ayam Penyek?

I wonder how do they "penyek" the ayam? Now I am imagining if the ayam penyek can be sustitited as Stomped Chicken. LoL :-D :-D

Rizal said... @ 17/9/09 1:44 PM

I will definitely be looking for Stomped Chicken for my Break Fast. Yes, with anything that has to do with grilled, baked, or fried chicken, the sambal or sauce is the main thing that will determine how awesome the chicken is :)
