Nasi Goreng with Chicken and Tjeplok

Image

Traditionally, nasi goreng is made with shrimp (not chicken) and sambal oeleck terasi…..but I felt like chicken today 🙂  And, as always, must have a “tjeplok” which is a “fried egg” or sometimes called “telor goreng….but my family always says tjeplok. For me it’s important that the yolk run all over the rice!

Ingredients:

1 lb organic chicken thighs, cooked and diced*

1 1/2 cups white jasmine rice

1 lb bacon

1 tbsp sunflower seed oil

5-6 shallots, chopped

2-3 cloves garlic, chopped

2 tbsp sambal oeleck

3 eggs

3-4 scallions

Directions:

-Cook rice

-Cut bacon into 1 inch pieces and saute in large pan or wok over medium high heat.

-Cook until crisp (5-10 min) and remove from pan and let drain on paper towel

-Leave bacon grease in the pan and add about 1 tbsp of sunflower seed oil (you could easily leave this out)

-Add garlic and shallots, saute about 30 seconds

-Add sambal and stir ingredients together

-Crack 3 eggs into the mixture and mix until eggs are cooked (you can whisk the eggs before if you want but I never do and neither does my Oma)

-Add rice and stir ingredients together really well, the rice should be a light orange color

-Add cooked chicken and stir

-Add scallions and stir well

While the rice is cooling, fry yourself up some eggs to go on top of your rice.  Selemat Makan!

*To cook chicken thighs, I marinated them in samba, salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon.  Cook in the oven at 350 about 45 minutes.
