The classic Hainanese Chicken Rice adapted for keto enthusiasts. This dish pairs tender boiled chicken with aromatic cauliflower rice, all elevated by a tangy coconut amino dipping sauce. Add fresh cucumber slices for a refreshing contrast.

Original Recipe:


  • Chicken
  • 1kg whole chicken, giblets removed

  • 10 g fresh ginger, peeled and sliced into 5 mm slices

  • 4 green onions

  • 4 tbsp sea salt

  • 2-3 tbsp sesame oil

  • 2.8-3.3 liters water

  • For cauliflower rice
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  • 2 cups cauliflower rice

  • 60 ml chicken broth

  • 1 tsp ginger, grated

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • Sea salt to taste

  • For dipping sauce
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos

  • 2 tbsp chicken broth

  • ½ tsp ginger, grated

  • ½ tsp garlic, minced

  • For serving (optional)
  • cucumber, sliced (optional)


  • Rub the chicken with salt until thoroughly clean. Rinse well and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Season chicken with salt and place sliced ginger and green onion inside.
  • Transfer the chicken into a pot, pour the water in, season with salt, and bring to a boil. When the water just starts to boil, reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid, and cook for 35 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken from the pot and place it in ice cold water for 5 minutes. Discard green onion and ginger.
  • When the chicken is cooled completely, pat it dry with paper towels and rub with sesame oil.
  • In a pan, heat sesame oil over medium heat, add ginger and garlic, and cook for 30 seconds. Add riced cauliflower and chicken broth, season with salt, and cook until rice softens, approximately 7-8 minutes.
  • In a bowl, combine coconut aminos, chicken broth, ginger, and garlic. Mix well.
  • Cut the chicken nicely with skin on. On a serving plate, arrange cauliflower rice, sliced chicken, and dipping sauce. Serve with cucumber slices (optional).
