Like all my mum’s recipes, they are quite straightforward and need minimal ingredients – in this case, just chicken, lup cheong and common Asian pantry stuff like soy sauce, ginger and oyster sauce.

"Claypot" Chicken Rice (Rice Cooker Recipe)

I’ve wanted to cook this for a very long time but according to my mum, I couldn’t do it with my previous rice cooker because the rice cooked too fast. Yes, my previous rice cooker was an el cheapo, S$30 basic keep warm/cook type which cooks rice in about 10 minutes flat! Really love it but unfortunately, it wasn’t built to last. The thermostat malfunctioned after a few months and after the second one broke down, I decided it was time to look for a more durable rice cooker. I finally settled on a rather high tech (neuro fuzzy), made-in-Japan zujiroshi rice cooker. The rice cooks perfectly and the rice at the base of the pot do not dry up even after keeping warm for a few hours. The only flip side is, it takes like 30 minutes to cook the rice! Well, at least, I consoled myself, I can now cook this dish which I have missed eating for some time.

  1. I cook this too, but I de-bone the chicken and cut it into smaller pieces. Also, I add shiitake mushroom.

    • That is a good idea to add shiitake mushroom. May I know which step do you start putting in the mushroom? Thanks :)

      Thanks a lot Wiffy for this recipe. I will try it soon :D Love your blog. I always go to your blog whenever I have no idea what to cook :D

  2. Love it! I usually pre-fry the chicken till half cooked and then dump into the rice cooker – as mine is a small cooker it might not cook the chicken thru or will take too long.

  3. Is it alright if I remove the skin from the Chinese Sausage ?
    Thanks for this yummy one-dish-meal recipe.

  4. I always assume that tampering the neuro fuzzy rice cooker halfway in the cooking process (e.g. opening the lid) may affect the fuzzy-logic functions and spoil the “machine” in the long run? Apparently it can be done.

  5. I love chicken with lup cheong rice. I cook similar but I add pumpkin and sauce. The rice turned out soggy instead :(

  6. this is one of the quick rice dish that I like to cook especially when i run out of idea what to cook for the day, your version sound so delicious and simple, Thanks for sharing.

  7. Thank you for sharing this recipe. My mom use to cook this when I was growing up and now I can cook it for my lil one!!

  8. My rice cooker makes it in 15 minutes flat – do you think I can make this still but cut the chicken smaller? I would love to try! Please let me know.

  9. Love this! I used to cook this once a week!

  10. Strangely I grew up not liking the taste of most meat but liked Chinese sausage. I actually miss it a bit now that I don’t eat it anymore. This looks like it would be delicious!
