Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

2 Pound(s) Chicken
1 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Cup(s) Oil
1 Teaspoon(s) Dried shrimp paste
4 Shallots, chopped
3 Garlic cloves, crushed
3 Chilies, red fresh
2 1/3 Cup(s) Coconut milk

Dried shrimp paste is also called terasi. Seed and shred the chilies.
Crush lemon grass with side of cleaver. Cut chicken in half. Wash and
pat dry. Rub with salt and oil. Grill over hot coals about 10-15
minutes each side, until done. Slice chicken into bite-sized pieces.
Wrap shrimp paste in foil and toast each side over moderate heat about
2 minutes. Pound shallots, garlic, chilies, and toasted shrimp paste
into a paste. Heat oil in frying pan. Add paste and fry on moderate
heat, stirring, for about 4-5 minutes, or until dry, do not burn. Add
coconut milk gradually, stirring after each addition. Add bay leaves
and lemon grass. Bring to a boil. Simmer 5 minutes to allow flavors
to blend. Add lime juice. Stir. Add cooked chicken and reheat in
sauce. Garnish with the shredded chilie. Serve with rice and Sambal
Ulek. Here is something that I remembered on my last trip to Padang
and the Mentawai Islands. I like those out of the way places..
