2 garlic cloves (finely chop)
1 large onion (fine brunoise: 1/16” cubes)
1 red chili (fine brunoise: 1/16” cubes, replaceable with capsicum or bird eye chilies for extra spiciness, keep some for garnishing)

2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds (keep some for garnishing)
3 tbsp plum sauce
2 tbsp Thai chili sauce (strain if you do not like the seeds)

PREPARATIONS:

  1. this is like the gulouyok? just that you’re using chicken instead of pork.
