Basically this grilled chicken is the leftover I have from opor ayam (translated: chicken in coconut gravy). Because me and the family don't really like to eat twice the same, so the leftover chicken I grill it in the oven or if it's summer at the barbeque grill... so safe the planet, nothing to be thrown away... and it's delicious too.. :o))
