4. Hainanese chicken rice

Hainanese chicken rice has a lot of oil and a fatty flavour, which adds a sweet flavor. Chicken pieces are simmered in porcupine broth; the lighter yellow color is appealing, and the flesh remains reasonably firm. Malaysian Hainanese chicken rice is a harmonic blend of components from Hainan cuisine, Guangdong food, and the beauty of indigenous Southeast Asian cuisine. In Malaysia, Hainan chicken rice is typically served with rice rolls, with each rice roll laid on the same plate of chicken sliced into uniformly sized pieces and frequently accompanied with chili sauce.
