Taipei chicken rice bowl

Taiwanese cuisine is best described as Asian-fusion with influences primarily from the Chinese and Japanese immigrants who occupied Taiwan, a hundred miles from the Chinese coast. Besides the staple – rice and seafood – fruits are used bountifully! Inspired by the bustling markets in its capital Taipei, we toss up a daring, delish dish! A simple, veggie fried rice provides a great contrast to the spicy Taipei sauce into which diced, crispy batter-fried chicken is tossed.
