One Dish Braised Chicken Rice


Chicken is coated in a flavorful marinade with Worcestershire sauce and oyster sauce, stir-fried with garlic and ginger, and finally combined with cooked rice. This recipe for Braised Chicken Rice was submitted by a reader, who recommends adding shallots with the garlic and ginger for extra flavor. Serves 4.



1. Cut the chicken into bite-sized (1 1/2 - 2inch) pieces. Combine the chopped chicken with the marinade. Marinate for 2 hours in the refrigerator.

2. Combine the rice and water in the rice cooker. Cook the rice in the usual way.

3. Heat the oil in the pan. Stir-fry the ginger and garlic until fragrant.

4. Add the marinated chicken and the mushrooms. Cook for 5 - 8 minutes, stirring the chicken and mushrooms together, and adding water if the mixture begins to dry out.

5. When the rice starts to boil, stir in the salt and black (dark) soy sauce to taste. Cover and continue cooking.

6. Once the rice is cooked, place the chicken mixture on top of the rice in the rice cooker. Cover, and let the rice stand for 15 minutes. (If desired, you can add scallions at this point for extra flavor).

7. Fluff up the rice, season with salt and pepper if desired, and serve.
