Fried Chicken with Tomato & Onion

This is my adaptation of a dish I enjoy at Ibu Putu's Warung in Bali. This little family-run restaurant is close to our Bali home, and we always visit several times during our stay. When we're home, this is a sensory trip back to Bali.

Like most of my recipes, the measurements are guesstimations, so adjust to suit your taste.

30 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

2 Tbsp
butter
2
large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1
large onion, chopped
2
limes or lemons
salt to taste
4
chinese fried chicken wings (or 2 thighs)
cooked rice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
To make this dish easier, I get my fried chicken from the local Chinese carry-out restaurant. It has a very light, crispy breading, perfect for this dish. Typical fried chicken has too much breading and seasoning. You can, of course, fry your own chicken, just don't use a lot of seasoning - salt and pepper will do. And, when buying my fried chicken, I will often go ahead and get rice too. When I cook my own, I prefer Basmati.
2
Seed and chop the tomatoes. Chop the onions. The pieces should be about 3/4" cubes. Place in a bowl.
3
Remove all meat from bones of chicken. Chop into bite-size pieces. Place in a separate bowl.
4
In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt the butter. Add the tomatoes and onions; salt and stir. Lower the heat and allow to simmer until the butter and juices form a sauce. (Another tablespoon of butter may be necessary.)
5
Begin adding lime juice. I suggest juicing one half lime into the mixture, then stirring well and tasting. We use the juice of two limes (about 1/4 cup). (Lemons work too, but we prefer the flavor of limes.)
6
When you are satisfied with the flavor of your sauce, add the chopped chicken and stir well. Remove from heat and serve over rice.
