After cooking chicken with various flavours using the oven that turned out so, so tasty and good [Roast Meat Recipes], this is another baked chicken [Ayam Percik] that I prepared recently. The usual method of preparing this chicken is by grilling over charcoal fire.
I came across this recipe which is by baking, that suit me well. The recipe uses whole chicken but here I used chicken whole legs and marinate it with only half portion of the marinade. The balance I set aside to prepare this dish again. As usual, we had this baked version of Ayam Percik with steaming hot rice, a stir fried cabbage and some sliced tomatoes.
The chicken is succulent, full of flavours, aromatic and tasty. Again, another awesome meal for the family which is fuss free and healthy.

NOTE: the marinade below is enough for whole chicken, use half of it if you are cooking only 3 chicken whole legs.
Recipe adapted from Yum Yum Magazine No. 77 [modified]

  5. Remove from oven and serve with steaming hot rice or mashed potatoes and fried vegetables or fresh salad. Drizzle thickened sauce over chicken. Serve.

Kimmy, your baked ayam percik sure looks good! With all the spices, how can it not be delicious. I am so hungry right now hah..hah...

Hi Phong Hong, this baked ayam percik is really yum, yum. I had used the remaining marinade to roast 4 pieces of drumsticks. They are so good. I like the juicy and tender meat. You must try this recipe, may like it....

I have not eaten ayam percik in ages! Looks so mouth-watering! I prefer to use chicken whole legs too! Yum!

Hi Joyce, my hubby used to talk to me about the Ayam Percik sold at the Pasar Malam which he loved but I daren't try them. This baked version is a good substitute and more hygenic and healthy. Look at the photo you can see that the meat is succulent.
