San Bei Ji 三杯鸡

The glazed San Bei Ji is one of the most classic Taiwanese recipes that screams “homely” flavour. When paired with Heavenly Premium Rice, the silky smooth texture, the pandan aroma and the colour contrast between the mahogany chicken and pure white premium rice make the dish savoury and highly appealing.
