One Pot Chicken Rice [Lazy Day Cooking]

One Pot Chicken Rice

When the lazy bugs visited me, I served this one pot chicken rice to my family. A short-cut to  Hainanese chicken rice, super easy meal to prepare yet comforting.

One Pot Chicken Rice

Ingredients (3-4 servings):
2 no. chicken whole legs (I used free-range chicken aka kampung chicken)
1/2 tsp salt

B (rice):
1 cup Jasmine rice (200ml), rinsed and soaked for 15 minutes
1/2 tbsp cooking oil (use chicken fat for extra aroma)
1 tsp sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3-4 slices ginger
Pinch of turmeric powder
1 cup HOT water (200ml)

C (dipping sauce, mix all together):
1 tsp grated ginger
1 tsp grated garlic
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp oyster sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil

D (side):
Sup celery / cilantro

  1. Prick chicken with a fork and rub with salt, marinate for 30 minutes or longer.
  2. Heat oils in rice cooker, saute garlic and ginger till fragrant.
  3. Drain rice well, add into rice cooker. Stir-fry till all liquid evaporated.
  4. Add water and turmeric powder, mix well. Place marinated chicken over the rice, single layer. 
  5. Close the lid and let it cook as if cooking plain rice.
  6. When cooked, wait for 10 minutes then open the lid. This is to allow the rice cook through with remaining heat, rice would not have hard centre.
  7. Remove chicken, chop up before serving.
