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

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.

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.

Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice . So glad to have this in my hood. Silky smooth deboned chicken and flavourful chicken rice. The queue is a downer but good food requires patience! My benchmark for all chicken rice would be Tong Fong Fatt and comparatively, this still pales in comparison wrt the rice but the chicken meat is almost as good. Just wished the chilli could be stronger with more kick!

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.

Finally tried the infamous Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice with the fam! We got half a chicken, bean sprouts and cai xim to accompany our rice 😋 Felt the rice was pretty tasty and the texture of chicken was great! However, we all agreed that the sauce for the chicken and vegetables was a tad too salty, and although the chilli was pretty good, it wasn’t the best and may be difficult for some tourists as it can get pretty spicy! 🔥 Nevertheless, although not mind-blowing, it was an above average plate of chicken rice, and I wouldn’t mind going back if there wasn’t a queue! 🙂 (P.S. Don’t be deterred from trying it if you see a long queue! The queue moves pretty quickly since they have two stalls, whereby you order at the first stall and collect your food at the second one.)

Chicken Rice Though just a Michelin Bib Gourmand this stall commands a almost constant queue during lunch. Notably the chicken meat is still moist and tender and rice is flavourful. Prices however have gone up. Overall it's still yummy yummy yum yum.
