Ayam kodok (lit.'frog chicken' in Indonesian) is an Indonesian stuffed and roasted chicken, commonly served as a holiday staple during Christmas and other special occasions.[1] The dish dates back to the colonial era, likely related to gevulde kip, the Dutch stuffed chicken dish.[1]


Ayam kodok preparation requires deboning a chicken, and then stuffing it with a mixture of seasoned meat and vegetables, and a hard boiled egg.[2] The chicken is then optionally steamed before it is roasted.[2]
