Ayam Percik literally means “splashed” chicken in Malay language. Well, the “splash” in this case is referring to basting of the marinade. This Malay dish originated from Kelantan, a state in Malaysia. I have cut down the coconut cream from the traditional recipe. I am only using fresh ingredients and you need a blender or a mortar and pestle – short cuts to this recipe may produce edible chicken but not as tasty as it should be. You must marinate the chicken pieces for at least a minimum of 6 hours before roasting.
