A very simple home cooked dish to make yet tastes so flavourful. Semur Ayam is a stewed chicken dish that is sweet and savoury, mainly from the kecap manis. Together with fragrance from lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and bay leaves creates a flavourful saucy stew that we all would die to come home to.
