Claypot Chicken Brown Rice
Have you ever cooked claypot chicken rice with brown rice instead of regular white rice? I did and I never looked back. Using brown rice is the same method as using white rice, but with better results in terms of nutrition and taste.
Smoky claypot flavour – checked. Signature crispy rice crust – checked. Bonus: Healthy brown rice with nutty flavour and chewy texture – checked.
Brown rice contains more fiber and nutrition than white rice. Brown rice is complex aka good carbs while white rice is simple carbs – this translates to slower weight gain when eating brown rice (google it). Now did I get your attention already? But please don’t quote me on this – weight gain/loss works differently for everyone with many other factors at play. Lastly, I really love the taste of brown rice – it has a nuttier flavour and a chewier texture than white rice.
All these reasons made the home-cooked claypot rice a precious gem, because I don’t think it’s easy to find claypot brown rice stalls here (if there are any at all).
