Wenchang Chicken 文昌鸡
Wenchang chicken is one of Hainan's four specialties, and may be the most well known of them all. Not only popular in Hainan, has it also become a signature dish in Hong Kong and Southeast Asia, due to the nostalgia for their home of the Hainanese diaspora. The chickens are generally free range chickens. Wenchang chicken is normally boiled and then cut into pieces. It is then eaten by dipping the pieces in a mixture of spices including chopped ginger, garlic, salt, soy sauce, vinegar, and freshly squeezed calamansi fruit. The skin of Wenchang chicken is typically yellow, and the meat is white and tender.
