    Give this plate of Chix Rice to my other half, he will say, ‘shiok’ anytime but for me, i prefer Chatterbox’s (Mandarin Hotel) coz they de-bone and de-skin the drumstick (Upon request). Presentation is nice n appetizing so is the price :-P

    I agree with you MB; I just dump everything onto the plate when I’m at home!

    The dish looks delicious!! I feel like eating it right now. I’m very lazy when it comes to serving food too. I just throw everything on the plate.

    Wow, thanks for posting this MB! I got the recipe from here:
    http://www.mykitchensnippets.com/2008/06/hainanese-chicken-rice.html

    The outcome:
    1. The chicken is very tender and juicy! Not dry at all! The rice is not as fragrant as those sold outside but it is a healthier version! The Homemade chili is great!!! Worth giving this recipe a try!

    I followed exactly the recipe, except for a few steps:
    1. I rub salt all over the chicken 10 minutes before stuffing chicken with spring onion, ginger and garlic and poach it in the hot boiling water.
    2. I did not plunge the chicken into cold water, as I prefer my chicken served warm. However, it will definitely taste and looks better (with skin nicely intact when you cut it later).
    3. I did not rub the seasoning (sesame, salt, pepper and light soy sauce) all over the chicken once the chicken is cooked. I usually chopped into pieces, served nicely on a plate, then only pour the sauce over the chicken. I would add some chicken stock into the seasoning too!
    4. The chicken stock from cooking the chicken earlier on is VERY useful. I normally use it to cook the rice, make the soup (by adding in some chinese cabbage) and mix some in the chili sauce!
    5. Oh yes, about the rice … Although the recipe do not call for butter.. But I do add some for a more flavorful rice:)

    I love the roasted version of chicken rice also… but I did not succeed to make a good one.. After doing much research, I came to know that those sold on the hawker stalls are actually Fried maltose marinated Chicken. Just in case, you wanna give it a try, here’s the best recipe that I have discovered so far:
