My favorite chicken recipe is pretty simple. Chicken and yellow rice.

Boil chicken. I use boneless but if not, de-bone after chicken cools.

Tear boiled chicken into small pieces (if you had to de-bone this step is probably already done).

Make yellow rice according to package directions.

Add chicken to rice , along with some early baby peas.

Allow all to play together on low heat for a few minutes.

Eat. (my favorite step)

I've always found the BEST chicken is a simple roasted chicken. Just salt and pepper the cavity, rub with a little butter or oil and perhaps a dash of garlic.

I usually include chicken in a stir fry, but my favorite is when dad grills it with a little bit of seasoning salt and serves with potatoes and onions (grilled in butter).

One that I am trying to re-create: When I was in Australia, I found a packet of "Hainanese Chicken" spices at Cole's. The directions said to cube the chicken, boil it, then remove from water and boil rice in this water. I don't remember if the spices were put in the rice, on the chicken, or both, but it was amazing. It had a very light flavor, and was a big hit with all of my friends, particularly after a week of overpowering Peanut Satay leftovers! Anyway, I'm searching for a simple recipe that has the same flavors - I have some options but haven't gotten to the store to buy things yet.

Simple and delicious -- but SO hard to do perfectly. I salute anyone who can turn out a great roast chicken every time. The temperature, the quality of the chicken, whether you put it in a hot oven then lower the heat or keep it at an even temperature, the phase of the moon -- there are so many variables. After years of trying (and reading Cooks' Magazine) I still can't be sure I'll turn out a flabby bird with dry meat or something edible.

Meanwhile, there's always Chicken Scarpariello. (Shoemaker style.)
Brown chicken parts in olive oil (not extra-virgin); sprinkle with chopped garlic, let the garlic soften but not brown. Cover and cook until chicken is done. Uncover, add salt, pepper and lemon juice, stir and cook a few minutes to make a thin sauce. Best with skin-on thighs, legs and breasts, but we use skinless cutlets to reduce the fat.

from the looks of the recipe the "hainenese" spice was probably just a mix of ginger and garlic and salt.

You can do this with ground chicken or put a lb of chicken chunks in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients. I have to add a little sweet thai chili sauce to the sauce to get it thin enough.

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

Sauce:
2 T peanut butter
2 t low-sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 t dk. sesame oil
1 t water
1 t rice vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced

Burgers:
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1 T chile paste with garlic
2 t peeled, grated fresh ginger
2 t low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 t salt
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, chopped
cooking spray
4 (2 oz) sandwich rolls w/ sesame seeds
1 cup onion sprouts or alfalfa sprouts

Directions:
To prepare sauce, combine first six ingredients; stirring well w/ a whisk.

Prepare grill; place onions and next 5 ingredients in food processor; process until coarsely ground. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2 inch thick patty.

Grill 4 minutes on each side or until done. Grill rolls, cut side down, for a minute or until toasted. Place 1 patty on each roll, top with 1/4 cup sprouts, 1 T sauce.
