Clay-pot Chicken Rice


Having five pots on a stove cooking at the same time is no easy feat. What more if one has 10 to 20 pots? That’s just how many a clay-pot chicken rice stall has! The good ones cook on earthenware charcoal stoves which have to be constantly monitored. The cook is often seen fanning and poking at the fires and juggling pots around. What appears to be a chaotic way of cooking, results in an absolutely fabulous smoky-flavoureds dish of rice and tender pieces of chicken marinated with salt, sesame oil, oyster sauce, dark sauce, corn starch and ginger juice all brought to a boil in a covered clay pot. Salted fish and Chinese sausage (lap cheong) give added flavour. The rice is very tasty having absorbed the marinade sauce. The dish is given a good stir and garnished with shallot crisps & spring onions just before serving. All the stalls listed below only open late evening.
