Malaysian Chicken and Sticky Rice

This Malaysian Chicken with Sticky Rice is a most delicious, filling meal, served together with fresh vegetables.

I am trying to add more fresh, non cooked vegetables into our meals and Carrots are always a delicious choice.

English Cucumber, or plain cucumber, if I have no English Cucumber and Spring Onions not only add color to the meal, but it makes the overall meal so much healthier as well.

Cucumbers are rich in multiple Vitamin B varieties and also contains two of the most basic elements needed for healthy digestion, which is water and fiber.

Spring Onions on the other hand are chock full of Vitamin C, Vitamin K as well as Vitamin A. I also prefer to use Spring Onions wherever I can as the taste is not as strong as that of plain Onions.

Remove the skin of the Chicken before baking,  to make the the Chicken a bit more healthy. Of course there will be no crispy skin, but I believe it is a small sacrifice to make if you really try to eat healthier.

And this coming from a person whom is absolutely addicted to a nice, crisp (even burnt!) skin on piece of chicken !

The Malaysian Chicken also turns out so tender and juicy ! My family goes crazy over this chicken each and every time I serve it for dinner.

Do not underestimate the simplicity of the Dipping Sauce ! The sauce makes all the difference in the world. We dip everything from the Chicken to the Fresh Veggies in this easy sauce.

Or rather dip the Chicken and drizzle the Sauce over the Rice and Vegetables.

First of all, I start with the Rice and once that’s going, I cook the Chicken. Whilst both are doing their own thing, I have more than enough time to quickly make the Dipping Sauce.

The Fresh Vegetables are also quick to get ready and most are also ready-to-eat available in stores. I, however do still prefer grating, slicing etc my own vegetables.

Due to it being so much cheaper for one, and secondly, I know the vegetables are as fresh as I will get them.

The Malaysian Chicken can of course be served on it’s own, which I do now and then, as it makes a wonderful addition to a Chicken variety tray.

Also known as a savory plate, which can be only Chicken, or a variety of savory snacks. This is usually great for a Saturday afternoon late lunch / early dinner and most definitely on Game Day.
