Usually I buy free range chicken / organic chicken (Ayam Kampung) to make Chinese herbs soup, never thought it can be deep fried till crispy as I thought the meat will be tough and hard after deep fried....
Until I tried a plate of Nasi Ayam Kampung in a kopitiam ( cafe) near my area, love the crunchy skin and no doubt the meat is still hard but the meat is very flavourful and tasty. No wonder this is a famous Malay dish.
For your information:-
Ayam Kampung - free range chicken
Nasi - rice
goreng - deep fried
I served this with simple butter rice (this time i added more grated carrot, use Jasmine rice and did not add turmeric powder), you can serve this with nasi lemak too.
This is my version of Nasi Ayam Kampung goreng....
