SINGAPORE: A Canadian content creator popular for cooking and food review videos posted a clip of himself making chicken rice on Aug 4, and local commenters have since given him two thumbs up.
“Singaporean here! It does look quite legit!” one commenter told social influencer Logan, whose chicken rice TikTok has since been viewed over 851,500 times.
And although it was the first time he made the dish, Logan made it look remarkably easy.
First time making Singaporean chicken rice ✌️
He prepared and cooked the chicken, made a chilli garlic sauce, another sauce with ginger, garlic and green onion, and then boiled the rice in the chicken stock. He served it all with a side of bok choy.
Logan then exclaimed how delicious the dish was. “Yeah, this is just like the best thing ever.”
He added that he enjoyed preparing it because you don’t even have to follow a recipe to make it, which he appreciated as someone who doesn’t enjoy following specific steps in cooking.
“There aren’t even any real measurements, you kind of just like add amounts of things. So yeah, try this at home because it’s really easy, to be honest.”
Food is almost sacred in Singapore, and many Singaporeans can be very critical when cooking local specialities.
But that’s not quite the case with Logan’s chicken rice. The video has gotten over 500 comments so far, with many approving ones from Singaporean TikTok users.
“FROM ALL OF US IN SINGAPORE – WELL DONE,” one said.
Another found it “quite legit!”
Others praised him but suggested some small tweaks.
Logan’s no-recipe method went over well with another netizen. “Same.. I’m Singaporean and I just dump stuffs till my ancestor says stop. I approve this dish.”
