“'Inche Kabin' is the inspiration for this oven roasted chicken. Inche Kabin, a favourite pre-marinated chicken dish among the Babas and Nonyas of Straits Settlements in old Malaya (now Malaysia), is traditionally double fried. This version would suit those who prefer not to deep-fry in their kitchens. (You may use pieces of a whole chicken if you wish.)”
