Introduction: Delicious Ajam Ketjap
My secret recipe for a delicious Ajam Ketjap dish, for 4 to 5 persons, is not so secret anymore, with just a few ingredients this chicken in sweet soy sauce wil become one of youre favorites.
Step 1: Ingredients
To make this delicous Ajam Ketjap you will need:

- a splash of oil
- 2 large onions
- 6 cloves garlic
- 1 small can of tomato puree
- 1 theespoon of salt
- 6 tablespoons of Sweet soy sauce (Ketjap manis)
You also need a cutting board and knife a stirrer and a large pan.
Step 2: Go to the Start
Cut the onion into pieces, put a little bit of oil in your pan and add the sliced onion and tomato puree together in the pan and fry until the onions are translucent. (it is very importent to put them in together, for the taste of the end product)
Step 3: Add Some
Whille you fry the unions an tomato puree, Cut the chicken breasts in dices, when the unions are translucent add the chicken and fry it until the chicken is brown.
Step 4: Garlic We Need Garlic
crush the garlic and put it in the pan stir and fry for 1 or 2 minutes.
(Some times people say that 6 cloves is to much and there breath will be terible afterwards. But you do not have to be afraid this wont hapen.)
Step 5: Add the Last
Now add the Theespoon of salt and 6 tablesppoons of Sweet soy sauce also called Ketjap manis, stir it and add about 1 cup of water ( the chicken has to be covered with the sauce you made.
Step 6: Time for a Coffee Break
Put the lid on youre pan and let it simmer for about 15 minutes occasionaly stir it, this is a good time to get yourself a nice cup of coffee.
Step 7: The Last Step
After about 15 minutes get the lid off of your pan and let it simer for another 5 to 10 minutes depending on the amount of watehr that was added in step 5, this has to be done for 2 very important reasons, first of all the excess liquid wil vaporize and second every body in the house will come towards the kitchen wondering what it is that smells so good.
You can eat this with bread or rice, both is delicious.
