Steamed Chicken Rice

   

Steamed Chicken Rice
My home-cooked Chicken rice – complete with condiments (chilli sauce, ginger sauce) and herbal (dang gui) chicken soup.

This is my take on perhaps Singapore’s most popular food, the Hainanese chicken rice. I think Hainanese chicken rice is arguably our most famous national dish. My way of preparing chicken rice is “almost Hainanese”, because the method of preparing the chicken is not quite Hainanese way of dipping in hot water to gently cook the chicken, or the more Singaporean way of boiling the chicken. Instead, I steamed the chicken, which is how my mum prepares her chicken rice. This method is easy, and yet it still retains the juiciness of the chicken. Somehow, the taste is close.

    Still a few hours to dinner time but I can hear drumming sound from my stomach. You sound so pro in preparing this dish with its condiments and soup! Planning to open a chicken rice shop soon? I will definitely be your 1st customer! ;)

    when i get to eat chicken rice, it’s always a happy occasion cause it’s something tht doesn’t happen a lot. so when i do, i always get the roasted chicken option (although i dont eat the skin) but the last time i had chicken rice, i was a boiled chicken convert. i’m liking the steamed one better now..and ginger sauce is to die for. why is it so good!! x

      The skin is the good part, really, though it’s not so healthy ;)

    fantastic step by step recipe. We’ll have to try this. Mom usually boils it, but I like the idea of steaming.
