Ayam Pekak

Feeling bored with all kind of chicken menu, I began searching on the internet for new recipe, which I'd never tried before. Then I came across Deetha's page where this menu shown. I imagined the combination of star anise and Chinese five spices may contribute to a unique flavor. Thus all at once my brain said this is a must to try! Apparently this menu is good to serve the day after it was cooked for the flavor will be richer.

- 1 whole chicken (I used 8pieces of chicken drumstick)
- 1 tomato, cut into 12
- 4cloves of garlic, chop thinly
- 1/2cloves of onion (I skipped it)
- 3 dried chili (I used 4 small green chili)
- 2 star anise (I used 4)
- 1.5Tbsp of oyster sauce
- 1/2tsp of Chinese five spices
- dash of salt
- 1tsp of ground black pepper
- 500ml of water
- 1 green onion, cut into 3cm in length
- oil for sauteeing

In a wok, preheat oil and then saute garlic and star anise until fragrant. Add the chicken drumstick and stir until changed color. Add oyster sauce, five spices, salt and ground pepper and stir it well.
Add the water and cook until boiling and thicken and the chicken cooked. Add tomato and green onion and stir it well. Continue to cook for another 1minute. Serve it with steamed rice.
