Inspired by Kedai Hamburg who made this dish for Masbar's Event, I challenged myself to make it as well :). As we know, the hard part of making ayam kodok is when you peel the chicken skin. You have to make sure you didn't tear the skin when you peel it. So, I saw the way how to make ayam kodok from youtube, and it worked!! :)

Frankly speaking, I even don't understand why people called this dish as ayam kodok (frog chicken *?? am i rite?*), but when I told my hubby the name of this dish, and my hubby explain to me that 'frog' here means took the bone out from the meat. So, I think 'ayam kodok' was only the translation in Indonesian lang.
Anyway, I am very satisfied the successes of peeling my ayam kodok :), also, when I saw my hubby's reaction when he saw the dish after I took it out from the oven.....he looked so surprised and said, "I want to try it with rice!" :). Everything is for you hun! :)
