Chicken rice is a great favorite of my family. This recipe is the simplest to make and wonderfully delicious! Thank you to wonderful friends - Cik Mat & Kak Tina for this really great recipe.

1 whole chicken (cleaned & cleared inside & all)
sesame oil
1-2 cubes of chicken stock
salt & pepper

2-3 cups of basmati / any long grain rice, washed & drained
2 garlics, crushed or sliced
1 inch ginger, crushed or sliced
3 stalks of spring onions
1 tablespoon oil

- heat oil, saute garlics, ginger & spring onions
- pour in rice, stir over low heat for a while (about 1-2 minutes)
- add soup above to cook rice, amount of soup follow the instruction to cook rice, basmathi cooks well with teh ratio 1 cup rice: 1.5 cups fluid

* I've tried roasting the chicken & it tasted great after brushing it with sesame oil. It was soft & moist inside with crispy skin.
