Recipe Description
Chilli Chicken Kam Heong is a popular dish in Malaysia. The name "Kam Heong" comes from the Chinese words meaning "camphor" (Kam) and "fragrant" (Heong). The main ingredients include chicken and dried chillies. The chicken is typically cut into pieces when it's being prepared for the pot so that it cooks faster and evenly. The chicken is then simmered with ground spices and dried chilli, then mixed with garlic, ginger, onion and lemongrass to make the fragrant sauce. The dish is usually served with a thick gravy over the chicken and a side of rice.
