uncooked jasmine rice
green onion, chopped
cloves garlic, smashed
1 (2 inch) piece
fresh ginger root, crushed
chicken thigh with skin
Sounds yummy and super easy, but stupid question: Is the chicken thigh supposed to be cooked before you put it in the rice cooker, or is it raw when it goes in and cooks with the rice?
this had ok flavor, and was greasy from the sesame oil. I followed the recipe as written, only I halved the recipe and had to put it back into the rice cooker and add more water because the rice wasn't done and all the liquid was absorbed. There is not enough liquid in proportion to the rice in this recipe. The liquid should DOUBLE the portion of rice because rice exands as it cooks.
I wasn't expecting this to be that good, but it was easy. It really surprised me. It was SO good. I used basmati rice because that's all I had. I also added a splash of soy sauce and used chicken broth instead of water and bullion cubes. It tasted like fried rice! I have tried and tried to make fried rice, and it never comes out right. This is the way to do it. Next time I'm going to add some veggies and more soy to make it even more like fried rice. Save a LOT of fat by cutting out the olive oil completely. It is absolutely not necessary.
I made this last night to go with my curry chicken dish.
It was very easy and had great flavor.
I did not use the extra olive oil because I was worried it would be too greasy. So I just used the seseame oil as instructed and it was perfect!
It was flavored of roasted garlic and scallions but still subtle enough to go with any dish!
Thank you, this will definitely be a regular!
This was super easy and tasty, though I modified it a bit. Like other reviewers, I omited the olive oil and was glad I did. I doubled the garlic, added half a bunch of green onions and four boneless, skinless chicken thighs (roughly chopped into bite size pieces). I also used chicken broth in place of the water/boullion and added 2 Tbl. soy sauce. Everything cooked perfectly and it tasted great topped with a little chili sauce (sambal oelek) and extra soy sauce to taste.
This was an amazing dish for the amount of effort you put into it. It tastes just like Hainanese chicken rice (express style). The house smelled so good while it was cooking because all the ingredients were steaming together. I made the recipe without changes but will probably marinate the chicken in some oyster sauce next time for extra flavor. The rice was awesome as is. Definitely a keeper for a quick dinner option.
This was easy and surprisingly delicious! I made a few changes based on what I had on hand. I used two cups of rice and three cups of chicken stock that I had leftover from a batch of Hainanese chicken rice. I skipped the olive oil but used four chicken thighs. I put in about five minutes of work and then closed the lid and pushed a button. 25 minutes later I fed my family a delicious dinner. Thanks for a great recipe!
I used a sweet onion instead of green onion and chicken broth instead of bouillion because I'm on a tight budget and have to work with what I have on hand. The chicken thigh wasn't really needed this time because I served this with chicken. YUM! NOTE TO SELF: This would be good with a chinese main dish next time.
