For their version, the cooks at Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street make golden garlic chips to mix into the rice at the end, along with a flavorful oil that infuses the entire dish. They add chicken to transform it into a main dish that can be eaten any time of the day. Soy sauce, scallions and a small amount of sugar give the rice complexity.
