Hassel Free rice cooker chicken rice 沙锅饭

As a stay home mum, I have to prepare 3 meals a day almost everyday. I love cooking, but sometimes you get sooo sick of it, but what to do? the kids still have to eat. Today was one of those days. I almost wanted to go to the nearby coffeshop to buy food until inspiration hit me at thye last minute. Rice cooker rice! It was so last minute, my chicken was barely defrosted when I put it into the rice cooker. But the outcome was still just as delicious. One pot meals, a stay at home mom's life saviour!

2 chicken drumsticks with thigh meat
4pcs of shitake mushroom
1/4 cup of pumpkin, skinned and cut into thin slices
1/2 pc Chinese waxed sausage (蜡肠) cut into small pieces
1.5 cups of rice

1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 dash of sesame oil
1 tablespoon shaoxing wine
1 pc of garlic minced

  1. Cut the chicken into 2 pcs and marinate with seasoning. 
  2. Wash rice and add the appropriate amount of water. (just like how you usually cook rice)
  3. Add everything else into the rice and mix well. Pop into rice cooker and cook. 
  4. When rice cooker indicates that it's cooked, do not open lid. Let the food steam in residual heat for another 15mins before opening.
  5. Stir well and serve with freshly cut spring onions. (optional)
