My Version of Thai Chicken with Rice

This is my version of Thai Chicken with Rice, by no means is it the real thing, but rather the inspiration. It is a very simple recipe to serve an Asian dish without much work. You can customize the ingredients to your taste. The main ingredients are chicken and jasmine rice, but I always make sure to include scallions, jalapenos, cilantro, and water chestnuts, lime juice and soy sauce. Sometimes I add thousand year old eggs, pickled mushrooms, shrimp, etc."


3 cups of uncooked Jasmine rice
1 poached chicken
2 slices of ginger
1/2 an yellow onion
1 garlic clove
Salt and pepper
6 scallions
2 jalapeno peppers
1 can of sliced water chestnuts
4 limes
Soy sauce
Cucumber slices
Bamboo shoots
Avocado slices
Plus ingredients to your taste


For the rice:
Wash the jasmin rice, mix with 4 cups of water and place in a rice cooker, or cook to your preference.

Poached chicken:
Place about 8 quarts of water to boil with the ginger, onion and garlic clove. Once it is to a rolling boil, add the chicken, making sure that the whole chicken (or parts if you do not use a whole chicken) is completely covered by the water. Let if boil for 5 minutes and then cover with a tight fitting lid and turn off the heat and let it stand for 1 hour (do not open the lid). After 1 hour check the chicken to see if it is completely cooked. It should be fully cooked but moist. Let it cool and chopped to your liking, I like to remove all the bones and shred the meat.
To assemble the dish:
Place the rice in a personal bowl, then top with the chicken, scallions, peppers, water chestnuts and any other ingredients you like. Then squeeze the juice of 1 lime and add soy sauce to your taste. I like to use the Japanese type of soy sauce (like Kikoman) since it's mild flavor won't over power the other ingredients. I personally like the Tabasco brand soy sauce. Serve immediately and enjoy.
