A simple recipe for stir-fried shredded chicken, inspired by the Balinese dish be siap mesitsit. This recipe uses readymade chilli garlic sauce and concentrated chicken stock for a quick and easy meal.


  • 200g chicken breast
  • 3 inches garlic, peeled and sliced
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil for stir-frying
  • 3 shallots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tbsp chopped spring onions
  • 1 tbsp chilli garlic sauce or paste
  • 1 tsp Indonesian sweet soy sauce (or Chinese dark soy sauce)
  • 1 tsp concentrated chicken stock
  • Salt to taste


  1. Boil the chicken breast over very low heat for about 30 min (or until the chicken is done), along with the garlic, the pinch of peppers, and some salt.
  2. Remove the chicken breast and shred.
  3. Heat up the vegetable oil in a frying pan or a wok, over medium heat. Add the shallots. Sauté the shallots until they soften, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the chopped spring onions, sauté for another minute.
  5. Add the shredded chicken, chilli garlic sauce, sweet soy sauce, and concentrated chicken stock. Stir-fry for 3 minutes.
  6. Turn off the heat. Garnish with a sprinkle of chopped spring onions and serve.


  • You can replace the Indonesian sweet soy sauce with Chinese dark soy sauce.
