Opor Ayam (Chicken Braised in Coconut Milk)

Featured on Episode 16 of Simply Ming, guest chef Damian D'Silva shares his authentic Singapore recipe.

Opor Ayam (Chicken Braised in Coconut Milk)


Calamansi, also known as acid orange, was used in this recipe. The combination of lime and orange juices is the best approximation if calamansi is not available.
Note: The original dish calls for the chicken to be grilled first before cooking, what this does is it imparts the grilled aroma on the dish. I like to half cook the chicken before finishing it on the grill. I feel this gives the best outcome from the cooking and grilling.
