Chicken with dried chilliesTried this awesome Chicken with dried red chillies in Singapore at a restaurant called Fatty Weng in the heard of Singapore City.
The flavours of almost burnt red chillies complimented the chicken so well that I had to recreate this. But now knowing the recipe, I tried to search online and came across a few recipes. This is my own version which is a mish mash of a few recipes based on the flavours I remembered from my trip.
500 gms of chicken with bones
10 dried red chillies
1 inch ginger3 garlic cloves peeled and grated

3 tsp soya sauce

2 tsp red chilli sauce

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp honey
