* Available at Asian markets and in the Asian section of some
supermarkets. If you can't find them don't worry, the recipe will
still work OK.
The Javanese seem to like their chicken pretty well done and chewy. I
prefer mine a little more tender and fry it for a bit less than ten
minutes. It has been a while since I made this, but I believe about
seven minutes is enough for me. This chicken is delicious and also
good cold. Make lots of it.
