Delicous, spicy chicken rendang

 When it comes to eating, Malaysians are known to have travelled miles and miles, just to enjoy a good meal with family and friends.

I did that "crazy thing" at one stage in my life: making a bee line just to have the 'best nasi lemak' in town or travelled to some remote villages for the best seafood.

in the end of it all, the best food ever, is always at home, cooked with love.

And this chicken rendang is it :P.

Thanks to my sister and my brother-in-law (Pak Ngah as he is known to his nieces and nephews) for this easy chicken rendang recipe.

For years and for every Eid celebrations, my brother-in-law, without fail will cook us, this chicken rendang.

We will have these mouth watering chicken rendang, serve with glutinous rice known as lemang (or ketupat) on the first day of Eid.
Kids love their Pak Ngah's  rendang.

I'd call this an easy, no fuss chicken rendang.

There is no marinating, no cooking the spice until the oil splits and no slaving by the stoves for hours, unless you prefer the dry rendang version with chicken meat fall of the bones!
