Delicious Chicken Rice

I love this chicken rice recipe. The original recipe is a Claypot Chicken Rice recipe which you can find on the Kuali website however I have tweaked it and thus will share my version here.

Serves 2

What you need:
8 small chicken pieces marinated with the following for 20mins:
1 tbsp light soya sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp cornflour

In a bowl mix the following:
1 tsp light soya sauce
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp Maggi chicken concentrate or chicken stock granules
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp dark soya sauce
Note: You can add a couple of tablespoons of water to the mix as well.

Others:
3 cm ginger, sliced
2 shallots sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
Couple of slices of dried mushroom (soaked in warm water to soften then drained and squeezed)
I cup of rice (washed and drained)
1 tbsp oil
What to do:
In a wok, heat up oil.
Add the cut ginger, shallots and garlic and fry till aromatic.
Add marinated chicken and stir-fry.
Add sauce mixture and mushrooms. Fry till chicken is almost done and put aside.

Mix rice with water and cook as usual. After 8 minutes, when rice is almost cooked, add chicken meat and continue to cook till rice is completely cooked.

Dish out rice and garnish with chopped spring onions and chilli strips. Serve hot.

Tip:
The ginger, shallots and garlic really add a lot of kick to this dish.
Don't worry if after 8 minutes, the rice is not almost cooked - just add in the chicken and leave it to fully cook. Once done, switch off heat and keep rice cooker covered. Once you find the rice is 'sticky' and to your liking, dish out.
Must eat while hot!
