Easy One-Pot Hainanese Chicken Rice

Hainanese chicken is one of the most classic Asian dishes out there but, if you’re doing things the traditional way, it can take a considerable time. Which is a shame on those busy weeknights when you want all the comfort it brings but don’t want to take a huge chunk out of your evening. So how can you enjoy the hawker classic… but make it easier? This one-pot, rice cooker recipe is the answer.

PREP TIME
10 minutes
COOK TIME
35 minutes
SERVES
4
Ingredients

2 cups jasmine rice

2 spring onions (scallions), trimmed, cut in half

3 slices ginger, skin-on

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2½ cups chicken stock

4 chicken drumsticks

4 small skin-on boneless chicken thigh fillets

sambal oelek, to serve

sliced cucumber, to serve

 

Spring onion sauce:

1 cup finely sliced spring onions (scallions)

1 tsp sea salt

4 tbsp vegetable oil

2 tsp sesame oil

Steps
  • Step 1

    Place the rice, spring onion, ginger, garlic and chicken stock in the bowl of a rice cooker. Nestle the chicken pieces into the rice. Close the lid and select the Automatic setting on the rice cooker, then press Start. Leave until the rice cooker automatic function finishes and the rice and chicken are cooked through.

  • Step 2

    For the spring onion sauce, use a mortar and pestle to bruise the spring onion and salt until it forms a rough paste. Place the vegetable oil and sesame oil in a small saucepan over high heat. Heat until a chopstick or wooden spoon placed in to the oil sizzles. Then carefully pour the hot oil over the spring onion paste. Stir until combined. Spoon out into a small serving bowl or dish.

  • Step 3

    To serve, transfer the chicken to a chopping board. Slice the thigh pieces. Serve with the rice, spring onion sauce, sambal oelek and cucumber.

  • Notes
    Notes:

    – We made this dish using the Panasonic 10-cup Rice & Multi Cooker SR-CN188WST.

    – Sambal oelek is a spicy paste made from fresh red chillies. It’s available from the Asian aisle of most supermarkets or from an Asian grocer.

Hainanese Chicken Rice made easy

This is a fast and easy version of this dish. The longest part will be making the spring onion sauce, which I was able to do while cooking the rest of the dish in the rice cooker.

Easy and soooo good!!!!

This recipe is so easy and quick and yet very healthy and full of flavor. It is very clean tasting. The flavor of the rice and chicken is the bomb! That green onion sauce added a different layer of flavor. Thank you for this recipe.
