Hainanese Chicken Rice

This rice and chicken dish is very savory.

It is similar to boiled chicken, well, it is actually boiled chicken but with accompanying rice cooked with the chicken stock from boiling the chicken.

It is more delicious than it looks, I added some turmeric powder to give the rice a touch of color; it may not look appetizing to eat for those who haven’t tasted it yet oh but it is so delicious…

I was quite surprised when I first had it.

The chicken is tender and quite juicy.. I made this with the whole chicken as usual but I’ll try cut-up chicken pieces next time…

All thigh parts ’cause that’s my family’s favorite. 🙂

Serve it with soy-ginger sauce on the side if you like.
