How to make it

  • For chicken: Trim off fat and skin from the neck and back/buttocks part of the chicken, keep for later. Remove innards.
  • Place entire chicken in a pot and cover with water / broth. Add 1-2 bouillon cubes (if using water), some sliced ginger (about 1/3 cup) , 4-8 garlic cloves, some salt and pepper.
  • Bring to a boil and keep at boil for 10min.
  • Turn off the stove and leave in hot water for 45-60 min. Take out of water, cover to keep warm.
  • For rice: Render the chicken fat in a pot. Add about 1/4c sliced ginger and some garlic, toast a bit.
  • Add rice (I use 1 1/2 cups for 4 people) and toast in oil until rice grains become transparent.
  • Add chicken broth (from the boiled chicken, use 1.5 times the amount of rice you placed).
  • Now you either cook this in a rice cooker or on a stove, your choice — just cook like rice from this point on.
  • For the sauce: In a bowl mix the ginger, some soy sauce, some vinegar, some sesame oil, and some chicken broth. General ratio for the 4 items is 3:3:2:2 Add some chopped chives if you want. Drizzle with chili oil or drop in some dried chili flakes, or use both the oil and the flakes.
  • Some siding suggestions: You can boil some green papaya in the chicken broth until they’re cooked but firm.
  • Thinly slice a cucumber and add vinegar, salt, and pepper, and maybe some sugar
  • Mush up or grate some ginger, and add some chicken broth and sesame oil.
