I believe this recipe is adapted from a Chinese cookbook, I can't remember which one. Usually i just do it from memory. It's really simple, just dump and turn on the rice cooker, and EAT!
- 1 cup long grain rice (uncooked)
- 1 cup water
- 2 tablespoons garlic, chopped
- 2 tablespoons onions, chopped
- 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
- 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce (may omit if unavailable)
- 4 pieces boneless skinless chicken (cut to bite sized pieces)
- 10 slices Chinese sausage (may substitute with other sausages in a pinch)
- 1 pinch white pepper
- 2 tablespoons deep-fried shallots (optional)
- 2 tablespoons scallions, chopped (optional)
- Wash the rice, then stir in the rest of the ingredients except for the garnishes.
- Cook the mixture in a rice-cooker as you normally would for rice.
- Garnish the cooked rice with the shallots and spring onion.
- If you like, drizzle a little more dark soy sauce over and serve.
Yummy!!! Other than the chinese sausage, I was happy that most of the ingredients required are usually in my fridge! To give the chicken abit of flavour prior to throwing in into the rice cooker, I marinated it with a tablesp of oyster sauce and sugar for about 30 min whilst i go abt chopping the rest of the ingredients. Didnt use chinese sausage but threw some prawns, frozen peas, carrots, and corn mix. I have also added alittle chinese wine, sesame oil, 1 chilli padi into the rice mix before starting the cooker. So good we went for seconds! Thanks for this no fuss claypot rice recipe, Watermelon!
Updated Review: This recipe was just okay for me, but the recipe proportions seemed off. I would have liked it better had it used more rice and much less oyster sauce. The oyster sauce was so over powering that I couldn't even finish one bowl of rice and threw the rest away. March 11, 2010 I would like to know the original recipe since I DO have a Clay Pot, but DON'T have a Rice Cooker! It sounds great, though, and I will attempt this one soon.
