Reheating hainanese chicken

  • s

How would you reheat hainanese chicken and the rice w/o a microwave oven?

  1. You can steam the rice to reheat it. However, the chicken tastes best at room temperature, imo.

      I finally reheated the rice in a pot w/a couple of tsps of leftover ckn broth over low heat and put the chicken in a 200 oven for about 5 mins, just to take the chill off. It was as good as the first day, not overcooked at all. Did make a new batch of scallion-ginger sauce though.

          Check out posts below re above dtd 12/08/04. Sorry, don't know how to do the link thing.

    2. My family made steamed rice every day, and one reheating trick used frequently was to place the stuff in bowl and place the bowl in rice cooker immediately after the rice was cooked. The residual heat from the rice cooker was a gentle way of reheating.
