What to do with left overs... Nasi Goreng
We try as much as possible not to have left overs. I do not know why but all left overs on our house seem to disappear into the refrigerator abyss and then resurface from outer space. I have made a very conscious effort and last night part of our dinner was made with left over chicken. I made an Indonesian specialty: Nasi Goreng.
I have been making this recipe for so many years now, that I really had to pay close attention to the amounts used so I could share the recipe with all of you. We did happen to have chicken left over therefore used it. Any type of meat is fine, or even just vegetables to be more on a vegetarian side.
We served along side pork chops just sautéed with a shadow of oil in a large skillet. Watermelon for dessert.
TIP: Ketjap is an Indonesian soya sauce. If you live near an Asian specialty store I am sure you will found it. It comes in three different thicknesses. Ask for medium. I have had all three and the too thick is too thick. It will have the consistency of honey, but very dark brown. Use sparingly and adjust as you go.
