  • Summary

    We took loose inspiration from Hainanese chicken rice to create this weeknight-friendly dish that retains the comforting and fragrant qualities of the beloved original. Seek out the highest-quality basmati rice you can find (we recommend Daawat brand)—it will make a world of difference in yielding supremely fluffy, evenly cooked rice.

    Ingredients

    • 6 small skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs (about 3 lb.)
    • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt, plus more
    • 2 large shallots, finely chopped
    • 8 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 1 2" piece ginger, peeled, finely chopped
    • 2 cups high-quality basmati rice, rinsed
    • 2 whole star anise
    • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
    • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
    • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
    • 2 Tbsp. unseasoned rice vinegar
    • 5 tsp. Sriracha
    • 1 1" piece ginger, peeled, finely chopped
    • 11/2 tsp. honey
    • 1 English hothouse cucumber, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced on a diagonal
    • 1 cup cilantro leaves with tender stems
