Clay Pot Chicken with Garlic Rice Instructions:

Cooking in Clay Pot Instructions:

Cooking in a clay pot is more tricky as you have to be much more careful. The biggest difference is, to first cook the rice in chicken broth in the clay pot, adding the uncooked chicken when the rice is half done. Serve when chicken is cooked. The rice may be a little burnt at the bottom but that’s part of the smoky flavor of the dish in a clay pot.

You may choose to cook the Clay Pot Chicken with Garlic Rice in a rice cooker rather than a clay pot. Here are the instructions for this:

Rice Cooker Instructions:

In a bowl, add light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, white pepper, and rice wine to chicken. Mix well and let marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. For better results, prepare the night before.

If cooking in a rice cooker, wash rice, add chicken broth, dark soy sauce and chicken stock powder. Set aside.

Heat oil in a frying pan. Add marinated chicken, ginger and sesame oil. Do not cook all the way. Add to the rice.

Cover and start the rice cooker. When the rice cooker is done cooking, mix the rice and chicken evenly. Let the rice sit in the rice cooker on warm for about 10-15 minutes.

When ready to eat, serve and garnish with green onions.
