Food Picture Series (let's start with the Hainanese Chicken Rice/海南雞飯)
During pandemic, like many others, I started baking and cooking more often than not at home. In the next few weeks, I'll try to blog and share the pictures of the dishes I'd made and the link to the youtube video(s) I learned it from. For food pictures, I usually took them with my smart phone, an Samsung S20 5G, followed by post processing using Snapseed, all on the phone.
Just last weekend, I made the famous Hainanese Chicken Rice. I based it off several videos but mainly the following two:
That was my first time trying to cook Hainanese Chicken Rice with a whole chicken from a supermarket, certainly with many trials and errors. For example, I had to simmer and cool the chicken twice because some part of the chicken breast looked a little pinkish. Overall, it wasn't bad at all. The chicken was very tender and juicy, and the rice was very fragrant and on the dry side, just the way I liked it.
