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.

    OOoo I should try this!
    My ‘lazy’ version of chicken/Hainanese rice is putting the chicken & rice in a rice cooker with all that other good stuff, i.e. ginger & garlic.

    I steam my chicken too for this dish! I should really get down to writing the recipe out. I normally just cook two chicken breasts for the two of us rather than the whole chicken, so it is easier just steaming those pieces rather than poaching an entire chicken. Yours look great!

      Look forward to your recipe! Steaming chicken breasts sound like a good idea as well. Less hassle, and boneless! :-)
