    This looks fantastic, Bryan! Really like that you infuse so much flavour into the rice, that’s what I’ve always found to be lacking when I order Hainanese chicken rice in Melbourne. I am also very impressed with your serving ware, definitely gives it an extra shot of authenticity. ;)

    This looks amazing…not sure I’d have the skill or patience to make it myself (I’m more a Jamie’s’ 15 minute gal) but I sure will appreciate the dish all the more now that I see the hard work behind it. YUM!

      Thanks! It’s a situation where you get so desperate to eat this dish that you make it, no matter how hard. But surprisingly, it’s somewhat easy to make!

      That’s awesome, I hope it turns out well. Be very careful with the poaching times, cook longer if you’re not sure.

    OMG! Want! It actually doesn’t seem all that hard either! Now I can have my own taste memory of Singapore at home. Hooray!

      It’s quite fiddly to do and you accumulate a lot of things to wash, but you’re right, it’s actually quite easy to cook otherwise! I’ll publish a recipe post for the chilli, ginger and sweet dark soy sauce in the near future. :)

    Yummmmm! I have not had chicken rice for a long time. In Adelaide, some people from my office would go to China Town every Friday for a ‘chicken rice lunch’ :)

    I was born in Malaysia, my dad went to NTU, I’ve now live in the US but have been to Singapore a few times. This is one of my favorite dishes.

    I’m hoping to cook it some day.

    Also hing to go back to Singapore to visit. The food, just thinking of it is making me so hungry!

      I love this dish too, it’s overtaken kway chap as a favourite food. But I still find myself missing fried Hokkien Mee the most!

    Looks lovely, but why is the chicken sooooo white in colour? did u use chicken or is it another type of bird?

      I used free range Australian chicken. They look paler I believe.
