1. Wash and cut whole chicken. Open it flat.
2. Rub seasoning all over chicken. Add in ingredient A and marinate it for at least 1 hour. Roast the chicken in a pre-heated oven at 230 degrees celsius or grill it till cooked.
3. Sauce: Heat up 3 tbsps oil. Sauté ingredients B till fragrant. Add in coconut milk and sugar. Simmer till thick .
4. Serve roasted chicken with sauce.
Tips: Marinate chicken one day in advance to allow flavours to seep in. For domestic cooking, you can cut chicken into pieces and grill it over hot charcoal like satay. Baste meat occasionally with sauce. This emits a smoky flavour.
