Literally translated in Thai, "Khao means Rice"; "Man means Fats" and "Gai means Chicken" which basically means that to get this dish to taste authentic, you need to use some rendered chicken fats - meaning you literally fry the chicken fats to release its oil and then use this oil to cook the rice so that the flavor of the chicken gets infused into the rice - hence the term 'chicken rice'. Getting the rice cooked to perfection is what separates why some shops attracts more loyal customers that the others.

The Thais love their sauces and for this dish especially, the sauce preparation plays a very important role to making this dish complete.
