Air Fried Chicken & Rice Ngoh Hiang 鸡丝五香饭卷



* in collaboration with Xndo for Zero Rice

I've given the traditional Chinese Five Spice Rolls 五香卷 a healthier tweak by using minced chicken instead of the normal minced pork and prawns. I've also air-fried the rolls instead of deep frying them the traditional way. Xndo Zero Rice has been used to make my Ngoh Hiang rolls more satiable to the stomach (比较有饱足感) so that I do not need to prepare other dishes for a simple yet hearty meal. This Air Fried Chicken & Rice Ngoh Hiang 鸡丝五香饭卷 is absolutely pleasing to the palate. You can dip it in any preferred dressing(s). Personally, I love dipping my Ngoh Hiang rolls with just Balsamic Vinegar...Yumz for the layering of flavours!

Xndo Zero rice is certified low GI, non-GMO, high fibre and suitable even for diabetics! Ready to eat, a healthy diet has never been easier! Promotion now on at all GNC Singapore & Xndo stores islandwide.
