This recipe is one of my mum’s 拿手好菜 (specialty) when I was a kid. She basically dump the chicken and lup cheong to cook with the rice in a rice cooker and you have a super yummy one-dish-meal quite effortlessly. This is also the “claypot-less” way to make claypot chicken rice – with a rice cooker.

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. Hi, may I know which step did you put in the ginger juice? Thanks :)

  2. I am going to cook this tonight!

    Do you think instead of adding 1 cup rice : 1 marking of water (same type of rice cooker, mine is toyomi’s), I can add slightly less water to cook the rice and pour in the remianing gravy?

    • Hi are you Angela on Facebook? If so, I’ve replied your comment there. I said that you can try adding a mixture of water and sauce instead of water alone if you want to use more sauce. I hope it well well, do give me your feedback :)

  3. Great. I don’t own a rice cooker. But do you think that’ll stop me from replicating this dish?

  4. This is very practical and looks great. I’ve never made a meal in a rice cooker, but after seeing your recipe, I will try!

  5. I love lap cheong fried rice and this looks so tasty! I love the fact that you used the rice cooker and cut back on the oil but it still looks like fried rice. Great recipe!

  6. I have to admit I’ve never tried doing anything like this before. It looks and sounds delicious!

  7. When you use your Zoji cooker to cook this, you set to ‘WHITE RICE’ OR ‘MIXED’? Cos the manual has a recipe close to this and it says dump everything in right from the start and set to ‘MIXED’. Thanks for your help. I’ll like to try this out too! Yum.
