Chicken Rice of Hoi An Town

Many tourists visiting Hoi An, both local and international travelers, consider Hoi An chicken rice to be a must-try dish. Even though this meal has been advertised in many locations throughout Vietnam, the town of Hoi An is the ideal place to enjoy Chicken Rice in Hoi An style. The recipe for Hoi An chicken rice is pretty simple: it only calls for rice, chicken, sauce, and pickled carrots. Cooking an excellent chicken rice plate, on the other hand, is not easy.

Chicken meat is torn into little pieces in Hoi An chicken rice restaurants, which are then mashed with smashed onions, Vietnamese coriander, and other spices to fully absorb their aromas. Instead of using industrial factory-style hens, the top chefs utilize free-range chickens grown in countryside gardens. Poultry raised in gardens is stronger and more flavorful than poultry raised in "industrial agriculture" establishments.

While many Westerners enjoy plump chicken meat, the best Vietnamese chickens for eating are smaller and have rich, muscular meat. The key to this recipe's success is to make the chicken pieces aromatic and spicy without losing the meat.

Then, the Hoi An chicken rice dish is eaten with a hot chili sauce, pepper to slow the heart, and a mixture of hard coatings on the chicken liver. Peppermint, papaya, and salted onions are sprinkled over the springy chicken pieces and fragrant rice. The fiery meal may sting your tongue, but it's an important element of the primary Vietnamese cultural experience.

So, if you appreciate chicken, don't get so caught up in Hoian's historical and cultural landmarks that you forget to sit down and sample the local fare. Hoi An chicken rice is suitable for both the afternoon and evening menus.
