Chicken rice is a dish of Chinese origin. This dish can be found in most food courts, street hawker stalls and coffee shops. There are also restaurants and chain restaurants that sells chicken rice as it's speciality.
There are many variations to chicken rice; Hainanese chicken (also known as steamed "white chicken"), stock or braised chicken and roasted chicken. Hainanese chicken is prepared by boiling the entire chicken in pork or chicken stock and dipping the chicken in ice after cooking to give it a jelly-like skin finishing. Stock or braised chicken as it's named, is braised in soy sauce whereas roasted chicken is chicken seasoned with soy sauce and spices, cooked in boiling oil. Other variations include a BBQ version or also a honey-roasted choice. The chicken is usually served with sliced cucumber and spring onions. The rice is usually oily or fragrant rice, cooked in chicken stock with garlics, sliced ginger or pine screw leaves. The dish is usually served with several dips, including chilli sauce and pounded ginger.
