Hainanese chicken rice is a very popular dish in Singapore and Malaysia. In Thailand, a similar dish is called khao man gai. It is deceptively simple and relies heavily on the main ingredient—chicken. The key is to purchase good quality chicken. Organic is good, as is air-chilled chicken. Air-chilled chicken has drier skin and it’s not injected with saline.
