Claypot-less Chicken Rice

Heh, it's pretty much claypot chicken rice but not cooked in a claypot :). I can't believe how the ingredients involved in making this are so similar to the other 2 savoury dishes in my last post (lo mai kai and tea eggs) and by changing the amount or adding a slight herb or spice makes it a totally different dish that has a different taste. So amazing.

Just like how it relates to life doesn't it...and I have no idea why I said that :P

Anyhoo, double post in a row goes to show that I have no plans this Easter besides more training and thinking of what to make in the kitchen. There is a dessert that I am really tempted to try but then again, the weather has gone much brighter these days and so I have succumbed to fresh air instead,heh.

This is dish is very easy to make if you have a rice pot. It's also nourishing and healthy, and all you need is a vege dish to complete your well balanced meal


Makes a meal for 2-3 person

(Recipes were referred to kuali's and rasamalaysia claypot chicken rice as a reference)

  • 200g chicken breast fillets cut into bite sizes
  • 270g white rice
  • Ginger juice or chopped 2" ginger for meat seasoning into fine pieces
  • 10g of Chinese mushrooms soaked at least 1 hour <----- the start to making this dish
  • Chopped spring onions for dressing
  • Chinese sausage (optional)
  • 15g Salted fish (I didn't add this but it makes the dish more authentic)
Meat seasoning

  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch

Rice Seasoning

  1. Cut the soaked mushrooms into bite size pieces.
  2. Add the meat seasoning and ginger pieces to the chicken and mix well. Marinate for an hour in the fridge.
  3. Rinse and clean the rice in a rice cooker as if you are making steamed rice after the chicken is marinated for an hour.
  4. Add the rice seasoning and cooking oil into the rice and start cooking the rice.
  5. At the same time, heat up a wok with some cooking oil. Add in the chicken and mushrooms.
  6. Quickly stir-fry the chicken until half-cooked. Dish out and set aside.
