Easy Hainanese with Scallion Oil Chicken Recipe


The Scallion Oil is the best thing that happened with the existence of spring onions! I can eat this with all my steamed dishes and noodle dishes! Ang sarap niya! 

That said, I am very happy to share my quicker version of Hainanese Chicken. Quicker kasi usually mas madaming steps pa! 

(P.S. don’t substitute Canola Oil with other oils, Canola Oil does not harden even if stored in fridge!) 



  • Fresh chicken (whole or chopped)
  • Salt
  • Water
  • Ginger Slices
  • Garlic 
  • Sesame Oil
  • Leeks
  • Peppercorn
Scallion Oil
  • Spring Onions
  • Canola Oil
  • Salt

Here’s the quick video I did to show you how to cook this yummy dish perfect for the family.


  1. Rub chicken skin with rock salt.
  2. Boil Water and add leeks, salt, ginger slices, garlic and peppercorn.  Add sesame oil.
  3. Once water starts boiling, put in chicken.  Set the fire in medium setting once the water continues to boil and cover chicken and cook for around 20-30 minutes depending on the size of your chicken.
  4. Separately in bowl, add chopped spring onions, add Canola Oil and salt.  Mix everything and cook in hot pan for around 4 minutes and serve with the boiled chicken.  
  5. You may top the Scallion oil on cooked chicken and serve with rice.
ENJOY!  Happy Cooking!
