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 also have question about the skin of the lup cheong. Is it necessary to remove it or it is ok to fry it with skin on?

  2. Never goes wrong to combine rice and sausage!

  3. I really love this quick and delicious lup cheong fan because everything is dumped into the rice cooker. Your lup cheong fan looks so delicious ;)

  4. where to buy lap cheong? there are many types, which to use? those packet under dried goods in fairprice?

    if to remove skin, how to?

    • Hi jur, I’ve tried the lup cheong at fairprice before – the “premium” one, about S$5, not too bad. I prefer the softer type of lup cheong for this dish such as “mei zheng xiang” brand for this dish, but a bit more costly than NTUC.

    • oh no, didn’t realise got reply..

      so i have to go mei zheng xiang and ask for what type of lap cheong? and how much did that cost you?

  5. In cooker or claypot, Chinese sausage with rice always make me eat more.

  6. It looks so delicious… really mouth-watering!!!

  7. Anything with lup cheong just love it! The fried rice looks so yum. Can eat bowl and bowl of this :)

  8. I use the same rice cooker :) Looks like it’s not just me with the long cooking time on this particular cooker! The rice is more tasty by the way, highly recommended!

    Will the rice be thoroughly coated without adding the remaining marinate?

    • Yes, for mine, most of the rice is coated with the soy marinade on the chicken pieces like shown on the photos. If you pour all the sauce in, I’m afraid the rice may become too soggy.

  9. can i cook the chicken to half cook (boil with water) oni marinate it and continue with the rest of the steps??

    • Yup you can do pre-cook the chicken partially before adding to the rice cooker. But I think I would prefer to stir fry than boil

  10. Thanks for posting this recipe. I’m cooking it now and I added dried Chinese mushrooms and salted fish.
