Hainanese Chicken Rice is a tasty and non-spicy meal consisting of a plate of specially flavoured rice, made by cooking the rice in chicken stock and served with a choice of either boiled or roast chicken.
The chicken is drizzled with soya sauce and sesame oil and garnished with spring onions.
The meal is usually accompanied by a small bowl of clear soup garnished with parsley, and a tangy light chilli sauce.
Add-ons, such as boiled leafy vegetables, hard boiled eggs and delicacies such as giblets and kerabu chicken feet can usually be ordered to complement the meal.
