Khao Mun Gai

Armoise | Sep 3, 2014 12:21 PM

I am looking for Khao Mun Gai that tastes like the ones I had in Thailand. Even at Hawker Fare and Kin Khao, the rice isn't very chickeny. I looked up several recipes online and they all call for cooking the rice in the broth form poaching a whole chicken. I suspect that part of the issue is that these restaurant are using only chicken breast for their Khao Mun Gai, and the broth isn't as deeply flavored? At Kin Khao it tasted like they merely tossed some steamed jasmine rice in rendered (flavorless) chicken fat. My friend and I agreed it just wasn't right....

Anyone found the real dish in the Bay Area? Malaysian or Singaporean versions work too...
