Honey soy chicken and chicken rice

October 5, 2014


If I had to name a food to represent love, I would say it’s chicken rice. That is to say I love everyone I’ve cooked chicken rice for. And if ever someone needed/wanted to show me love – bring on the chicken rice ;)! Hainanese chicken rice (海南雞飯) is arguably the most famous chicken rice of […]
