Rice Cooker Chicken Rice

This “rice cooker chicken rice” is my no-pride, lazy and short-cut cooking (my speciality) at its best – chicken rice, cooked in the rice cooker. I have made claypot chicken rice in the rice cooker before, so this is not new.

Yes, I do have authentic recipe for Hainanese chicken rice, or my mum’s steamed chicken rice, but I reserve this recipe for days I know I will be super busy. All I need is 5 minutes to dump the ingredients in the rice cooker, and I let the rice cooker do the rest of the work – it really can’t get any easier than this.

Rice Cooker Chicken Rice (Ingredients)

Short-cuts Used

  1. The chicken has already been chopped to small pieces by the wet market uncle. I freeze the bag and thaw the chicken on the day of cooking. Saves me the time and trouble of cutting the chicken.
  2. Store-bought concentrated chicken stock (the tetra-pak types will be better than the stock cubes), unless I happen to have home-made chicken stock sitting in the fridge.
  3. Rice cooker for steaming the rice and chicken at the same time.

  1. i love how easy this seems! <3 <3 <3
    and i love how you still do chicken rice at home although it's available everywhere in sg :D

  2. Can’t wait to try this

  3. Love this simple chicken rice recipe so much, will bookmark in my lazy weekend recipe list..

  4. The recipe is simple. I tried and taste GREAT! My family enjoyed eating the chicken rice very much. Thank you.

  5. Wiffy,

    If I normally use 2 cups of water to cook rice, does that mean I only use 1 cup water and 1 cup stock to make this recipe? Thanks.

  6. Hi. I did this before but I have a problem with some of the chicken having blood inside near the bone. Is there anyway to fix this?

  7. how about for one serving?…how many cup of water?

  8. I made this dish for dinner today with good results. Easy to do, fast and relatively healthy! Thanks.

  9. I have a rice cooker with a steamer basket. Do you put your chicken on top of the rice or the steamer basket?

  10. I tried cooking this today in my rice cooker and it failed. As it is for 5-6 pax, I double the portions mentioned above. My rice cooker cooked within 30min. I waited another 30min. The chicken isn’t cooked at all and some portions of the rice as well :(
    Now i am trying to steam everything, hope at least it manage to savage a bit and is still edible. I think either because of the huge portions or my rice cooker. So disappointed

    • sorry to hear that. Every rice cooker cooks differently. Maybe next time you can stir fry the chicken until opaque, before adding to the rice cooker.
