With food having an important role in the Chinese New Year celebrations, it’s only fitting that you select the ones with symbolic meanings of luck and auspiciousness to usher in good fortune for the coming year.
This makes it, therefore, the perfect time to combine everyone’s favourite fried chicken with the golden Hae Bee Hiam orange breadcrumbs — symbolism of the Chinese phrase “遍地黄金（Bian Di Huang Jin)”, which translates to bountiful wealth and good fortune everywhere — to serve a feast that family and friends will enjoy.
Texas Chicken’s Hae Bee Hiam Chicken
After traversing through majestic, stormy seas for months, the Texas Chicken Crew has found the legendary culinary treasure for your Chinese New Year celebrations – the golden-orange Hae Bee Hiam Chicken!
Using only 100% fresh chicken that are delivered daily to the restaurants, they are coated with a special Hae Bee Hiam recipe made with dried shrimps, that are fried till fragrant with belacan, shallots and other spices, and orange breadcrumbs.
Before they are served, more crispy Hae Bee Hiam orange breadcrumbs are sprinkled onto the fried chicken to enhance the rich aroma and give it a nice golden-orange colour and satisfying crunch with every bite.
The well-balanced combination of umami taste and subtle spiciness beautifully complements the natural flavour of the tender fresh chicken, making it a delicious Chinese New Year treat for all, young and young-at-heart.
On the inspiration behind the debut of the Chinese New Year Hae Bee Hiam Chicken, Mr Eugene Lim, Director of Brand & Marketing of Select Group, the company that operates Texas Chicken, said: “We want to create a flavour that resonates strongly with Singaporeans, especially during Chinese New Year, and Hae Bee Hiam has always been a popular condiment in Asian cooking. Its unique sweet, savoury and spicy umami taste simply whets appetite, even at the mention of its name. After much testing, we found the right Hae Bee Hiam recipe that goes amazingly well with our succulent, tender fried chicken!”
“The auspicious golden-orange colour of our Hae Bee Hiam Chicken is also a symbolic way for us to wish our diners overflowing happiness and prosperity in the Year of the Ox”, he added.
Other Items on the Chinese New Year Menu
In the spirit of bringing even more ”旺” or “Huat” to diners this Chinese New Year, Texas Chicken also introduces the new Pineapple Butter Biscuit, which is their version of the favourite pineapple tarts. Glazed with pineapple jam to give a sweet and tangy taste, the soft and fluffy biscuits, that are baked daily to ensure their freshness, are must-haves to complete a meal. Plus, sip on the refreshing Sjora Mango Peach drink for a fruity tingle while you enjoy the food.
