Recipe by STARDUST_331
"My mom designed this recipe to free up the stove by using the rice cooker to steam and stew chicken thighs, yielding tender, almost slow-cooked chicken with a comforting taste. It takes a while to make, but requires minimal work. You can use any cut of chicken, but dark meats come out especially soft. Serve with white rice and enjoy!"

This was delicious!!! I followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out perfectly!! I can't switch my rice cooker to the stay warm setting, it does it by itself. I just turned it off and let it sit for 20 minutes and it was perfect!!! Thanks :) My only negative is that I didn't double the recipe!!!
Fixed as written. The chicken turned out very tender and juicy. That said, the flavor was very strange and the sauce was very salty. I think it is because the soy sauce was reduced to a thick sauce and overwhelmed the flavor. There needed to be another flavor added to the soy sauce besides garlic and ginger. I will use my own favorite marinades and use this method of cooking chicken as it did turn out juicy chicken with a nice sauce.
These thighs are so moist and tasty, it is unbelievable. I used the juice to cook the rice in and everything tasted wonderful. Not too salty, just enough spice to make it interesting and meat almost melts in your mouth.
