I’ve been wanting to make chicken roti using cornish hens in the IP for quite some time now. Our family loves chicken roti and perhaps more is the thick sweet sauce that this dish yields. The sauce is a combination of the marinade and Coco Rico Soda! If you have used/followed my recipes before you would know my passionate love for Coco Rico Soda! I use it for everything, from boiling pork for spring rolls to braised dishes. Of course Coco Rico Soda is technically a substitute for fresh coconut water. So if you have coconut water, by all mean, use it!
I thought the chicken would be the main focus for this dish, but as it turned out it was the red rice! My boys loved it! They ate all the leftovers the next day. Red rice is often served at Vietnamese restaurant accompanying different chicken and pork dishes. It goes so well with chicken roti and it’s super easy to make. It’s definitely a must!
