Mie Ayam Recipe

What is Mie Ayam? Mie Ayam is unlike most Indonesian cuisine, where the secret is in the sauce, the clue to a good mie ayam is the perfect al dente noodle. For this dish, bakmie is boiled in stock and topped with succulent slices of gravy-braised chicken. It can also be mixed in with fried mushrooms for more flavor.

Mie Ayam preparation:

Stir Fry Chicken Mushroom:

  1. Combine 1 tbsp mushroom soy sauce, chicken pieces and ground white pepper; stir well. Add 1 tbsp tapioca starch and mix well. Set aside.
  2. Stir fry garlics and ginger until fragrant. Add seasoned chicken pieces. Stir frequently to let the aroma of ginger and garlic stick to chicken and cook until chicken changes colour.
  3. Add mushrooms, the rest of mushroom soy sauce, kecap manis, broth/water, salt and ground white peppercorns. Cook until seasoning is absorbed and chicken is cooked. Set aside. There might be a small amount of broth left in the cooking, so we can use up for assembling the noodles later on.

Chicken Broth:

  1. In a large pan, add water and bring to a boil.  

  2. Add all other ingredients then cook at high heat  

  3. Once it’s boiled, reduce to low heat and continue cooking until the next 30 minutes. Remove from the heat, drain and broth is ready to use.

Chicken noodle soup (mushroom optional)

  1. To make the chicken oil, heat the vegetable oil in a pan and fry the chicken skin until crispy. Add the garlic, ginger, white pepper and coriander. Lower the heat and fry for another 15 minutes. Take out the chicken skin, garlic and ginger. The oil is ready to be used.
  2. Boil the water in a pan. When it is boiling add the chicken bones. Lower the heat and let simmer until the nice aroma comes out. Add the ground white pepper and salt.
  3. Blend garlic, shallot, coriander, turmeric, ginger and candle nut in a food processor.
  4. Fry the spice paste in a frying pan for 2 minutes. Add the cubed chicken breast and fry until the chicken is cooked.
  5. Pour 2 tablespoon of chicken oil to each bowl.
  6. Boil the noodle with the Chinese mustard and bean-sprouts until just tender.
  7. Put the noodle, bean-sprouts, and the Chinese mustard in the bowl and add 2-3 tablespoon of chicken.
