Chef’s secret

When preparing chicken rice, one has to be aware of different cooking times for various sizes of chicken. After boiling the chicken, let it run under tap water for half an hour before chopping it up. This helps prevent the chicken from cooking within. If overcooked, the chicken will turn dry and the meat will not be smooth.
