Ayam Pop (a Chicken Dish)

Speak frankly, I really don't know what is the exact translation for Ayam Pop in English. Ayam means Chicken and Pop, mmm, usually we know Pop as one of music genre. maybe they name it Pop because this chicked dish very popular in Indonesia specially from West Sumatra as pop music :))

Maybe if I am not living far far away from my country, I never cooked the dish. Anytime you want it, just go to Padang Restaurant and order, sit, then eat it. so simple...But here, in Cannes, impossible! Make it your own that's the solution. Ok, why was not so difficult, trust me...yet it's delicious!
