Henry Chicken Rice

By my queenstown on Thursday, July 15, 2010 with 6 comments

There was a long, long queue when MyQueenstown spotted this famous chicken rice stall in Commonwealth Crescent Food Centre on a weekday lunch time. As we approached the popular stall, we saw many patrons (or gluttons) munching Henry Chicken Rice's hawker fare happily. Office ladies and school girls were braver. They finished the entire plate of chicken rice, including the skin! We thought, "this chicken rice must be something special."

Henry Chicken Rice 

We ordered half a roasted chicken and helped ourselves with their homemade chilli sauce. The chicken meat looks tender and we couldn't help but salivate at the prospect of conquering them. A roasted chicken can be prepared by marinating one whole chicken with ginger juice, soy sauce, honey, salt, white pepper and five spice powder in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 30-40 minutes until the skin is brown and crisp. The chicken is cooked if the juices run clear when the chicken thigh is pierced with a fork.

Mr Teo, the cook of Henry Chicken Rice, have been serving residents with his delicious roasted chicken since 8 August 1985. A former construction worker, Mr Teo learnt his trade through a chef at Mandarin Chatterbox. Every day, he could sell up to 30-40 chickens and it is unsurprising considering the snaking long queue waiting for their turn to get a bite on the tender chicken meat.

One word-awesome!

Mr Teo was very welcoming and the chicken rice was good. There was a generous amount of juicy chicken, some do fu in the soup, and very fresh chili and vegetables. Delicious!

Chicken so so but both Mr n Mrs Teo are very rude n proud as you cannot ask for more chilli,1 small packet of chilli costs 50cts and moreover 4 plates of rice you have to order half of the chicken,if you wan lesser chicken then cannot order 4 plates of rice .......... very very proud
