We made this tasty dish for our Hawaiian Luau. "Long rice" is not rice, but cellophane noodles made from mungbean flour, also known as bean threads. This recipe starts with marinading the chicken for an hour, which I've included in the prep time; but once you start cooking, the dish takes very little time to make. Please note that the bean threads absorb water very quickly and require very little cooking time. If they are cooked too long, they will break down.
