Nowadays we just snip off the shallot towards the base of the plant and within a few days a new shoot is emerging. Of course I found this out AFTER I made this dish...oh well, you live and you learn.
The Boy and I fell in love with Kecap Manis when we were in Bali last year - we'd have it on our breakfast eggs each morning (is that a really Bogan thing to do)? Having it at home now reminds us of our wonderful holiday and when I found this recipe for Lemon + Kecap Manis Chicken on fellow blogger Eat Eat Play's website and it looked SO simple that I knew it had my lazy name all over it.
I don't exactly follow the recipe - making this as a stirfry rather than grilling the chicken in the sauce like the recipe suggests (yes, because I'm lazy and I think this way leads to less washing up for The Boy). It still tastes FANTASTIC and it's become a regular of the menu in our house.
