Special Chicken Rendang

I have always love eating rendang. As I grow older and older, I start to be more health conscious , if you know what I mean. LOL. So I have stop eating rendang unless I am attending some Kenduri or so . One fine day , my friend actually " ta pao " / packed Nasi Lemak Rendang Ayam , which she claims to be different from the normal rendang. Guess she really meant it , I mean she is serious man. LOL. It turns out to be the most delicious rendang I ever tasted. Heehee....
I have been around searching for this special rendang recipe. I was really lucky when I stumble upon one recipe which I think its the same one that I have tried. The rendang turns out to be a hit . Everyone licking their fingers as if they actually use their fingers to hold the chicken rendang instead of fork and spoon. LOL.
Honestly , I really so love this recipe I dun think I will ever change my rendang recipe ever.
