Chicken Rica-Rica

is a popular spicy food from Indonesia. Rica-rica or sometimes simply called rica is originally from Manado (a city in Sulawesi Island). My closest friend taught me this recipe when i was still in Indonesia. This delicious dish uses chicken cooked with some authentic herbs. Tender and spicy that comes together to the chicken in a wok with loads of flavor. If you are not into spicy, you can just take the chilis out from the recipe and i’m sure you can still definitely enjoy this dish. Combine this delicious chicken with plain or yellow rice.

You have appetite for more chicken recipes?
