Ayam Kecap // Chicken in dark soybean sauce

I remember, 4 5 years ago .. I was a newly wed and must to moved to different country, far from my beloved mom , I did not know how to cooked at all .. I just know how to boiled water -LOL-

OMG , I just realized this will gonna be a nightmare, off course we couldn't afford to eat in restaurants every night . So, every morning I called my mom to asked some simply recipes - hmm , I just listened my mom explained how to cook by phone .. well , seemed so easy .. OK, no big deal. !! But there was a big deal, ^_^ when my husband finished last spoon he said, food was ok .. but chicken didn't cook .. ha..ha..ha..

Today, I have no idea what for dinner, so all sudden I remember one of my mom original recipes :-) , and become my signature recipes after that. Every friends who have a dinner at our home always ask me to make this chicken dish.
