If you wonder what sauce Aristocrat serves as the dipping sauce for the chicken which it calls “Java Sauce” it’s sweet soy called Kekap Manis enhanced with a tiny bit of peanut butter. (Kekap Manis is an Indonesian Soy Sauce. It is available in major supermarket or Shopee Online Store). However, if you really cant find Kecap Manis, try the alternative Peanut Sauce recipe we have provided below.

- Grill the Chicken: Skewer each chicken and set aside.
- Prepare your grill and charcoal. Crushed and scatter the charcoal into small pieces around the grill and make sure there is no fire coming out. Chunky charcoal can burn your chicken in one side.
- Start grilling the chicken without basting it yet. (it will burn the chicken due to the sugar content of the basting sauce.) Keep on turning every few seconds to prevent from burning on one side.
- When chicken is nearly cooked baste chicken with the cooked sauce and cook for one more minute on each side.

- Heat a small saucepan. Combine water, soy sauce, peanut and sugar.
- Bring it to a boil and simmer for about 4 minutes and stir constantly until sauce becomes slightly thick. Turn off heat. Sauce will thicken as it cools down.
- If it becomes too thick, just add a teaspoon of water to dilute to desired consistency.
