My deepest thanks to Melanie Wong and others who replied on Hainan Chicken Rice...it could not have been more fortuitously timed. I am the Pentagon correspondent for a wire service and, shortly after filing my question about the above dish, found myself covering the "detainment" of 24 military servicemen and women on this very same Chinese island. My fellow reporters think me brilliant for knowing where and exactly what Hainan Island was PRIOR to this international contretemps.

Here's hoping the crew of the EP-3 is being fed copious amounts of Hainan Chicken Rice to make their captivity go down a little easier. Tie a yellow ribbon...
