PostSubject: Hainanese Chicken Rice   Sat Aug 16, 2008 1:06 pm

A local specialty from the island of Hainan off the coast of China


1 whole chicken, about 3 pounds
1 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic, peeled
4 slices fresh ginger, peeled
4 scallions, trimmed
about 12 cups water
2 tablespoons sesame oil
sliced tomatoes (garnish)
sliced cucumbers (garnish)
cilantro sprigs (garnish)
Chicken Rice:
2 cups long-grain rice
2 tablespoons peanut oil
5 shallots, peeled and minced
5 cloves garlic, minced
3-1/2 cups reserved stock from cooking Hainanese chicken
1/2 teaspoon salt
Wash chicken and remove excess fat. Rub the inside of the cavity with salt.
Smash garlic and ginger slightly with the flat of a knife. Tie scallions into a knot.
Place garlic, ginger, and scallions inside the chicken cavity.

Bring the water to a boil in a pot large enough to hold the chicken.
Add the chicken, breast-side down. Simmer, covered, 30-40 minutes, turning chicken
halfway through the cooking process, until chicken tests done (juices from thigh should
run clear when pricked with a fork).

Carefully remove chicken, draining liquid from body cavity back into the pot.
Reserve the stock to make chicken rice. Plunge the chicken into ice water for 5 minutes
to stop the cooking process and tighten the skin. Drain, rub with sesame oil, and let
cool to room temperature.

To serve, chop chicken into bite-size pieces (the Chinese do this bone and all)
and arrange on a platter. Garnish with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, and cilantro sprigs.

To make the chicken rice, wash the rice and drain in a colander. Let stand 1/2 hour to dry.

Heat oil in a wok. Add the shallots and garlic. Stir-fry until fragrant. Add rice grains and
stir-fry 3-4 minutes, until glossy and fragrant.

Transfer to a saucepan. Add the chicken broth and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat and
boil until the liquid level evaporates to the level of the rice and steam holes appear.
Turn heat to low. Cover and simmer 40 minutes. Serve with Hainanese chicken.

Serve with Chile Sauce

PostSubject: Braised Chicken with Tomatoes and Olives (poulet provencal)   Sat Aug 09, 2008 1:14 pm

Featuring olive oil and the combined herbs and produce of the south of France, this one-dish country dinner will transport you to a caf table in Aix in a heartbeat.


1 pound tomatoes (3 to 4 medium), cut into wedges
1 large onion, cut into wedges, leaving root ends intact
1/2 cup drained brine-cured black olives, pitted if desired
4 large garlic cloves, sliced, plus 1 teaspoon minced
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 teaspoons herbes de Provence, divided
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 whole chicken (about 3 1/2 pound)

Equipment: kitchen string
Accompaniment: crusty bread
Garnish: chopped flat-leaf parsley


Preheat convection oven to 400F for regular oven to 425F with rack in middle.

Toss together tomatoes, onion, olives, sliced garlic, 2 tablespoons oil, 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence, fennel seeds, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a 13- by 9-inch or other 3-quart shallow baking dish. Push vegetables to sides of dish to make room for chicken.

Stir together minced garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, remaining teaspoon herbes de Provence, and remaining tablespoon olive oil.
