As a multi-racial country, chicken is one thing we all can agree with and blessed with tons of variations. Remember how we came together when someone commented our chicken rendang was not crispy enough? Here a list of strong chicks from Malaysia.

Ayam Tempayan/Pasu

Ayam Golek

Golek aside Kenny Rogers, the Malaysian version is charcoal roasted for that extra bakar flavor. Also a big hit during Fasting month. Origins of the dish is traced to the east coast of Malaysia.

BBQ Chicken Wings

Very popular among the Chinese community especially as a great snack with beer. It’s salty and sweet with strong hints of oyster sauce and honey. It gives buffalo wings a run for its money.

Chicken Varuval

This is a must have during banana leaf rice session. But beware and take note that this black beauty of a dish is laced with tons of dried chilli ranking it close to atomic level.
