The Aristocrat Restaurant is well-known for its chicken barbecue recipe. Many were inspired in unlocking the secret to the sweet and flavorful chicken barbecue of this iconic restaurant. Their legendary chicken barbecue comes with java rice and atsara on the side.

With the ongoing pandemic, we are craving for a lot of meals from our favorite restaurants. But since it is best to stay safe at home, I have been trying to reinvent restaurant-style meals. It would cost relatively low and nothing beats the happiness of unlocking a restaurant’s “secret recipe”. #TipidTips The Aristocrat is one of my favorite go-to restaurants. Their chicken barbecue is literally what I order every time. I spent some time in the kitchen to try to imitate the richness and the flavor of the Aristocrat chicken barbecue. And now, I will share this aristocrat-style chicken barbecue so that you don’t need to experiment on your own. Give this dish a try!


Despite its intimidating name, the aristocrat chicken barbecue is actually prepared using simple steps. To prepare the chicken skewers, marinate the chicken pieces in a flavorful liquid made with a mix of sweetness, sourness, spice and umami flavor. Sounds amazing, right? Let it marinate and then transfer them into skewers when they are ready for grilling.

Since we have received a lot of love from our readers and viewers, we are sharing not just one but two of our SECRET recipes which will best partner your aristocrat-style chicken barbecue. The first one is our creamy and velvety peanut butter sauce. After you put the chicken pieces into skewers, reserve the marinade. We will use it in our peanut sauce. Simply heat all the peanut sauce ingredients until it thickens. Aside from being a dipping sauce, this peanut sauce will also be used as a basting sauce to enhance the flavor of the grilled chicken barbecue.

When both the chicken skewers and the peanut sauce are ready, time to grill! It is best to use a charcoal grill for an authentic smoky flavor. But if not available, you can roast the chicken in an oven. Remember to baste the chicken with the peanut sauce only when it is nearly cooked. The sugar in the peanut sauce may burn if added too early. Grill the chicken barbecue fully for the best-tasting aristocrat-style chicken barbecue!

The chicken barbecue can actually be enjoyed as it is but can also be enjoyed with rice. #Asians Here is our second secret recipe which we will share. Upgrade your hot steaming rice to hot steaming java rice! Rice becomes instantly bongga when made into fried rice. Java rice is known to be yellow in color and has this very garlicky flavor.

To make some java rice, sauté some annatto seeds in oil. The seeds will release a wonderful yellow or orange color. Remove the seeds and sauté some garlic until golden brown and then add your leftover rice. Toss the rice until fully-coated with the yellow and garlicky oil. When all grains are yellow, the java rice is done.

Serve the aristocrat-style chicken barbecue, java rice and peanut sauce in one plate and eat like an elite!
