In Vietnam and other countries around the world, Steamed Rice with Chicken is popular and there are diverse ways to cook it. In Vietnam, Chicken Rice can be found in many different regions in the country. The recipes depend on local products, local tastes, and local preferences.
Hoi An Chicken Rice (Com Ga Hoi An) recipe has a complex flavor, great texture, and attractive smell. To make Com Ga Hoi An, the cook must use the best rice and fry on a pan with oil, salt, and turmeric powder. Then the rice is steamed with chicken broth instead of water. The steamed rice is stir-fried with garlic which makes it more smelling. After frying, the rice should be in yellow color, not too dry but not too wet, not too tender but not too sticky, and amazingly smelling.
The main dish is topped with shredded boiled chicken, chicken organ, pickled onion, and herbs. As you can see in the photo, the Chicken Rice is served with green papaya salad, chicken organ soup, chili paste, lemon wedge, and chili. Com Ga Hoi An is a perfect mix of the steamed rice, boiled chicken and chicken organ, salad, and soup. This is the first food I’d like to recommend to any tourist coming to Hoian. Each Hoi An cook has his own secret recipe to make his Rice unique.
