Today, we will be featuring the 2nd recipe video of our Tecno Local Oven Recipe contest winning entries, this time being Ayam Bakar Rempah by @miss_polkadot
A smooth and fragrant rempah is made, which then coats the marinated chicken nicely. Once done we leave it to rest, ideally overnight to further enhance the taste. The chicken is then grilled using the oven 15 minutes per side or until desired, and coated with more yummyyy gravy!
Not only is it easy for most home cooks, but also very delicious too – Enjoy your lovely Largo-60 Built-In Oven prize by @tecno_singapore , and happy cooking with it!
