the chicken rice and chili here is without saying (though there were more tender days but i am not complaining). introducing 猪头, 猪耳皮 at the side; good "lor" and braised comfortably to retain a soft bite, this plate of pork stole some limelight from the chicken i must say.

For Super Affordable Chicken Rice This may not be worth travelling across Singapore for, but for those who live or work in Jurong West, expect a true bargain for chicken rice at what Tastemaker Fabian Poon says is the area's best kept secret. Tastemaker Emily S paid only $7.50 for a generous set of steamed and roasted chicken rice for two, and the steamed chicken had her waxing lyrical about how tender and silky smooth it is. The sauces, especially the chilli, are great too. If you're in a large group, take Tastemaker Fabian's lead and order one whole chicken (get a combination of steamed and roasted for variety) along with a side of roast pork belly and char siew to share. What will comfortably feed a gang of eight will only set you back $31 — what a steal! Avg Price: $5 per person Photo by Burpple Tastemaker Fabian Poon

2-person Portion Exploring the far west earlier in the month with the #BurppleTastemakers, our first order of business led us to A&I Boneless Hainanese Chicken Rice for breakfast. An awesome find, our generous 2-person portion with a mix of steamed and roasted chicken was both surprisingly tender. However, if I had to pick a favourite, the steamed chicken wins hands down as the roasted chicken lacked a little oomph in terms of seasoning and texture. Enjoying mine with tons of black sauce, the steamed white flesh was wonderfully smooth and I couldn’t resist chomping down on the glossy skin with that nice layer of gelatin just underneath. Most importantly it was boneless. The rice was worth mentioning too as it was fragrant, not overly cloying yet holds a good amount of flavours in each grain. Noted with a constant queue, the store operates from 6AM - 3PM daily so go down early for a good breakfast or brunch. #BurppleBestofJurong

Tender White Chicken Am not a fan of chicken rice 鸡饭 - for how unhealthy it is, it doesn't give me the satisfaction I feel it needs to make it worth it. However, this is one place I would love to try again. The clear winner here is the 白鸡 white chicken, as it is really tender & the skin is silky smooth (as it should be). I usually peel the skin away, enduring the judgmental looks of everyone around me. But this time it was different; I tried the skin because it looked so good, & I was right - it was! The 烧鸡 roasted chicken was tougher, so it isn't my favourite. Soup was nothing special, but sauces were YUM. I happily tucked in to the chilli. I don't know if you'd travel all the way to Jurong West for this (鸟不生蛋的地方), but for those who are in the vicinity, give this a shot 😉🐔🍚 They're only open 6AM - 3PM daily, & they're not open this whole week (1st week of June 2017), so come back next week & onwards! Portion for 2 pax (in the picture) costs $7.50 only. #BurppleBestofJurong #BurppleMajulahMakan

Bishan Chicken Rice For Good Grades!! According to my senior, eating this chicken rice brings you luck for your exams HAHAHAHAH jk you need to study hard to do well. ANYWAY, the chicken rice is not bad. The chicken is served cold and the soup is flavourful!! Don't specially go down to eat the chicken rice cause it's like any other chicken rice so what I suggest you to do is if you happened to be in that area then do head down and try it!

It's good! This place has remained popular all these years, and for good reason! Not the best but very shiok when you eat it 😊 Overall very satisfied & one of the better chicken rice in SG. 💗 Rating: 7.3/10 💗 Will i return/recommend: Yes/Yes 💗 Pros: Thick chunky meat & chicken is cold w "jelly" (chicken thigh). The skin is very silky! Nice soup, fragrant rice. 💗 Cons: Long q's during peak hrs, but moves pretty fast. Always sold out of this or that item. Portions shrinking, px increasing. Rice undercooked. Meat tad bit dry. Overall standard did drop. 💗 Price: S$16 - chicken thigh 2pax, veg

Chicken Rice ($4-6) One of the best chicken rice I've had, located at the Kim San Leng coffee shop right next to Bishan bus interchange. This is the type of chicken rice where im guessing they dunk the chicken into ice water immediately after it's cooked, which leaves it tender with the skin super q. There's always a queue, but thankfully we went there before the queue was full-blown long. Also topped up $0.50 I think for extra rice, and they gave an ENTIRE BOWL OF RICE lol.

Traditional Cold White Chicken Rice Expect a long queue when you get here, and if you don't see it, then they are probably closed or have sold out. There's something very traditional about the taste of this chicken rice, and you can tell that the flavors you're experience is the pure essences of the chicken extracted in the classic methods that they have been practicing for years. I personally prefer the bolder and more tender styles, but this stall takes you back in time and you can understand why stalls like these are a rare breed these days. Go check it out when you can!

Half chicken with crystal feet and innards ($20). This is Yishun's famous chicken rice and it's now also one of my favorite chicken rice stall. 🔸 I love the tender chicken with silky smooth skin that's drenched in flavourful and fragrant soya sauce. The chicken feet is a must-order, it had been deboned leaving only the soft skin that came with slight crunch. Dipped that in the same gravy that came with the chicken, and enjoy its texture. 🔸 Rice was also fragrant. If I've to pick on something, it would be the chilli that wasn't thick and garlicky enough for me. The chicken and the feet is the main draw for me, so I would be a regular here.

Boneless Chicken Rice $4 One of many chicken rice I like and have been eating for some time. Pretty much what you would except from a good plate of chicken rice haha though the rice here tastes harder than elsewhere, feels like they have been stir fried in wok after steaming. #burpple

As I wrote in my @goawaysg feature last week about how one should never argue with a Sarawakian about the best Sarawak laksa, one should also never do the same with a Singaporean when it comes to chicken rice, here is one of the best and a favourite of many dear friends. Extremely smooth skin over tender, flavourful meat – even the breast meat is chockful of flavour and not the slightest bit dry. Love the "sauce" that is drizzled over the chicken...soy sauce, a touch of sesame oil and the chicken fat – most importantly, it's not overly salty. Each grain is still whole and not sticky unlike most places which tend to overcook it. Never excessively oily. Ok, that's all.

Hainan Chicken Rice. Smooth, succulent, and delicious. That's how I would describe their chicken rice. The rice is well made, and well balanced. On its own, the rice is flavourful, and not drying, with hint of chicken oil, and garlic. The chicken were so juicy, that the breast meat tasted exactly like the the chicken thigh or legs. There simply no need to fight for the best part, as everything is just as good. And nothing is complete, without the innards of the chicken, liver and gizzard, giving it a different texture and dimension in your mouth.

For Tasty Chicken Rice At Bukit Timah Market and Food Centre, it's a tight competition between rival stalls Fu Ji Hainanese Chicken Rice and Seng Heng Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice for the best chicken rice. Both sport long lines during peak hours and both have equally tender and tasty chicken meat. Fu Ji, however, only serves steamed chicken while Seng Heng serves both the roasted and steamed versions (a plus point for sure)(from $3). In the end, it boils down to the simplest of ingredients — the rice. According to Tastemaker Russell Leong, who ate at both stalls, Seng Heng's version is much "tastier, had less fat from the chicken within, and every grain was packed full of flavour". To tip the scales even more, Seng Heng gains bonus points for providing ginger sauce! Avg Price: $5 per person Photo by Burpple Tastemaker Russell Leong

[Seng Heng Hainanese Chicken Rice, #02-177] Rice here was more fragrant than Fu Ji and not overly greasy, so that was a win for me. Personally felt that chicken was tender but flavours did not stand out - the chili was great tho. Decent enough for a satisfying meal! #BurppleBTFC #Burpple

Round Two: EAT Fu Ji's competition is Seng Heng Hainanese Boneless Chick-yeah, I'm just gonna call it Seng Heng. Both stalls pride themselves on steamed chicken rice, so you know the rivalry runs deep. Both of them are roughly on par with the quality of their poultry in terms of tenderness and tastiness, so there has to be something to break the deadlock. That something is the all important yet oft overlooked rice, which is Seng Heng's ace up its sleeve. It was tastier than Fu Ji's rice, which was heavier, richer, and less flavorful, while Seng Heng's was lighter (albeit somewhat harder, although that is easily rectified by generous splashes of soup onto the rice), had less fat from the chicken within, and every grain was packed full of flavor. Now, it's up to you folks to decide which stall is the ultimate victor of this vicious chicken rice war. #burppleBTFC

Popular For A Good Reason The ever-present queue at the "Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice" is a testament to how good it is. Tender and moist like nobody's business—yes, even down to the breast meat—the chicken is one of the tastiest around (@zippyzipeng even says this stall's tastes better than many restaurants'). The hawker douses everything in a light soya sauce that has a touch of sweetness - something I find quite unique. Just as marvelous is the rice which is aromatic and full of flavour. Even if you are trying to avoid carbs, I reckon this stall's one is worth indulging in. Their chilli sauce although decent in terms of spiciness, is a bit watery in my opinion. However, since everything else is superb, it's no biggie.

Boneless Chicken Rice For the BESTEST (I think for me) chicken rice in Singapore head to Golden Mile food center and try the Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice. You have to try it to believe it. Pro Tip: Queue usually is really long so chope seat first and wait in the queue. Average waiting time about 15-20mins. So you can imagine how good it is.

Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice ($18/Whole Chicken) It's been a while since I've had Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice (#B1-35) at Golden Mile Food Centre but I think my love for their tender poultry has been reignited!😍 Their highlight here is definitely the supple, moist chicken that's just amazingly good! While both versions are great, I think their steamed chicken lends better to their style of chicken rice. Queues might be long and the auntie doesn't seem to rush out of the stall screaming "SHIOOOOOO" at people any more, but it's still worth lining up for every time.

[$2.50] Steamed Chicken Rice Where else can you get tender and moist chicken rice for such a steal??? Even my high school priced the chicken rice at a higher price! For it's price, it easily exceeded expectations. FYI, the chilli packs a punch!

Yummy Chicken Rice The chicken breast is tender & moist & not as dry & hard compared to other stall. As for the soup is brewed using the chicken bones and it's MSG free hence taste naturally sweet. What I like most is the gravy which they pour over the chicken, not too salty and very fragrant unlike other stalls which are oily and salty. I also love the rice which is fluffy & flavourful & not too dry or soft. The rice also have a nice fragrance of garlic and sesame oil. The chili also taste shiok and sourish & not watery. Overall, this is one of the best chicken rice I ever tasted & is a must try for all chicken rice lovers! #BurppleMajulahMakan

Tong Fong Fatt Hainanese Chicken Rice Surprisingly juicy and tender! Together with the tangy chilli sauce, the sinful soy and sesame sauce takes it off the charts! Maybe a little too oily but you calories don't count when you are having good chicken rice! Rice is fragrant though slightly undercooked. $9 for half a chicken, what more can you ask for? Fatty choy move aside, this is tops in ABC Brickworks market and food centre !💓

$5 Chicken Rice Got the medium Chicken Rice from the famed TianTian Chicken Rice @ Maxwell Food Centre. Medium was $5 and regular was $3.50. My friend got the $3.50 portion and got double the amount of chicken of my measly portion of chicken. Asked the auntie if it was a mix up, she said no, the $3.50 one has a wing and bones while my $5 was pure breast meat. Pretty disappointing. Paid $5 for this measly plate of chicken rice....not worth it. Just get the half chicken if you plan to eat there! Sauce drizzled over the chicken rice was good though. I'm just really salty that my $5 'medium' chicken rice had such a pathetic amount of meat while my friend's $3.50 plate was loaded with meat.

There's always a debate as to where's the best Chicken rice in Singapore but Tian Tian's is always up there with the best. I loved the their chilli sauce where they use lime juice instead of vinegar. Chicken is tender and the rice is super fragrant. It's definitely a good idea to head after lunch hour to beat the crazy lines.
