I've been looking for easy to do dinner recipes for weekdays and ways to avoid take-out dinner. This one pot chicken rice cooked in a rice cooker surely fits into the category and was a comfort food on a rainy day.
It is best eaten hot and can be paired with some stir-fry vege or soup.
You need :
2 cups basmathi rice, soaked for 30 mins
1 skinless boneless chicken breast, chopped
8 fresh shittake mushrooms, sliced
3 cm ginger, sliced thickly
spring onion, chopped
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp thick soy sauce
2 cm ginger, grated
salt and pepper, according to taste
few dash of sesame oil
Combine together chicken pieces and sliced shittake mushrooms with the marinade mixture and set aside.
In a rice cooker pot, place rinsed rice with enough water, ginger slices and some salt and switch on the cooker.
When rice is 3/4 cooked, add in the marinated chicken mixture on top with spring onions, close lid and let rice cook fully. Once cooked, mix all together and serve hot.
