At Malay wedding ceremonies, roast chicken is usually served to the bride and groom as part of their first meal together as husband and wife. In the early days of our marriage, I cooked this dish for my husband, on top of all the other special Eid dishes, to celebrate our life together, and to remind him that Malaysians also have a roast chicken dish! Hence, this dish holds a special place in my heart. This roast is definitely a crowd pleaser and any leftovers are perfect for making cold sa
