Chilli Sauce For Hainanese Chicken Rice

When having Hainanese Chicken Rice, a must have is a good chilli sauce. I was introduced to this beautifully blended chilli sauce by my daughter. Everyday we have long telephone conversations . Topic ranges from food, furkids to bible verses. My daughter who is also my best friend stays in Australia, so it's a long distance relationship but fortunately technology has brought us nearer. We can WhatsApp call or zoom to see each other. Sorry for the short digress, back to our recent conversation on food we cooked, she recommended this chilli sauce that she makes everytime she has chicken rice.  I tried it out and guess what? It is a must have chilli sauce and today I made a big batch for keeping in the fridge. It is a tangy, sweetish and flavour packed sauce for chicken rice . Once I had it , I became addictive to it. A must have chilli sauce when having poached chicken . It is easy to whip up too. It is made up of fresh red chillies, bird's eye chilli for extra heat, garlic ,ginger, sugar ,salt and vinegar . 
 Sometimes I add a tablespoon of oil from the soup after poaching the chicken , it gives the chilli sauce the extra oomph

Chilli Sauce 
12 pieces of fresh red chillies
3-4 pieces of bird's eye chillies
5-6 cloves of garlic
4cm piece of young ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tbsp of sugar
1 tbsp of vinegar or fresh Calamansi Juice
2tbsp of chicken fat from the steamed chicken.

1. Blend the first 7 ingredients in an electric blender till fine. Take out the chilli mixture and adjust seasoning to your taste .
2. Stir in the chicken fat into the chilli sauce when serving.

If storing in the fridge for long keeping ,do not add chicken fat. Add only during serving time.
