  1. I might also add, this may be “simple” malaysian chicken, but there is nothing simple about its flavor! So tasty! Could drink that juice! 🙂 Oh wait, I did!

  2. This was soooooooo good! Even my husband gave it thumbs up, and sometimes his nose is afraid of fish sauce. I LOVE FISH SAUCE similar to a religion. Very good recipe….gives the thai chicken bake a run for its money….love both of these recipes so much, thanks!

  3. Oh I haven’t had hot chili sambal before. But I can pretty much guarantee that I’m going to like it! This stir fry looks perfect!
