Did you know that the Hainanese were the first Singaporean immigrants to master the western cuisine? Read more here.
Paying tribute to the pioneer Hainan chefs, this recipe explores the iconic use of soda crackers and trademark ketchup-based sauce with veggies. Think crispy chunks of tender meat drenched in saucy good, perfect with a bowl of rice!
Watch this video to learn how to make a quick sauce that uses frozen mixed veggies. This recipe calls for 1 hour marination but you can marinate it longer (overnight even) for extra intense flavours.
Swap out the pork for chicken thighs and voila, extra crispy Hainanese chicken chop at home.
