One Pot Honey Soy Chicken & Rice

If you're wondering how to make Chinese claypot chicken rice, wonder no more! I made my version of this classic Asian rice dish on the stovetop (and also tried the claypot setting on a rice cooker) and can happily attest it's delicious either way.

ONE POT HONEY SOY CHICKEN & RICE

PREP TIME

15 minutes
COOK TIME

35 minutes
SERVES

4
Ingredients

4 dried shitake mushrooms

600g (1.3 lb) chicken thigh fillets, cut into roughly 4cm pieces

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp dark sweet soy sauce

2 tsp sesame oil, plus extra to drizzle at the end

1 tsp cornflour (cornstarch)

2 Chinese lap cheong sausages, sliced

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 tbsp finely grated ginger

2 cups jasmine rice

2 cups chicken stock

½ cup Chinese Shaoxing cooking wine

1 tbsp honey

sliced spring onion (scallions), to serve

Steps
Step 1

Soak the dried mushrooms in hot water for 15 minutes to soften. Remove and discard the stems from the mushrooms. Cut the mushrooms in half.

Step 2

Combine the chicken with the soy sauce, dark sweet soy sauce, sesame oil and cornflour.

Step 3

In a large claypot or heavy-based pot with a lid (cast iron dutch ovens are ideal if you don’t have a claypot), place the chicken, mushrooms, sausage, garlic, ginger and rice. Mix until well combined. Add the chicken stock, Chinese wine and honey and stir until mixed thoroughly. Cover and place over a high heat and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, turn the heat to low and cook gently for 30 minutes or until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender.

Step 4

Remove the lid. Sprinkle the top of the rice with spring onion and a drizzle of sesame oil. Serve warm.

Notes:

– You can also make this in a rice cooker. Marion tested the recipe in the Panasonic 10 Cup Rice Cooker (CN188WST). Simply place all the ingredients into the bowl of the rice cooker and select the ‘Claypot’ cooking function for an automatic cook time.

So flavourful

This was so tasty, and was ready without much work or cleanup to do, my favorite kind of cooking. Thanks for this recipe!

Delicious and so easy to make

I make it in my pressure cooker under the rice cooking section and it comes out full of incredible flavour. I add some veggies to it, such as carrots, peas and button mushrooms and we get 4-5 lunches to take to work/school.

Loving Marion and Noi

Fantastic variety of food, easy to follow and cook. Love Marion and Mumma Noi’s banter. A must for Asian cooking.
