Hainanese Chicken Rice Dipping Sauces

Hainanese Chicken Rice

Servings 4 cups or more
Author Connie Veneracion


  • 2 cups rice
  • 4 to 6 cups broth in which the chicken was cooked


  • Measure and rinse your rice, cook it as you ordinarily would but, instead of water, use the strained liquid in which the chicken has cooked. Never mind sauteing more garlic and ginger and cooking the rice in oil before adding the broth. If your broth is flavorful enough, i.e., you started with stock rather than water, you can skip the entire sauteing routine.
  • While the rice cooks, make the dipping sauce.
