Chicken Rice Recipe for the busy mom

Its been forever since I posted or shared any recipes. Well, here's a simple chicken rice recipe thats too good not to be shared with other busy moms. Its really easy and tastes nice too.

Since I had a seizure and was diagnosed with epilepsy, it would not be safe for me to cook on my own using open fire over the stove so I had to find other ways to cook. My sister taught me to cook this all-in-a pot chicken rice that requires only the rice cooker to cook. Here's how to make the chicken rice.


  • Ginger
  • Shallots or Small Onions
  • Garlic
  • Boneless Chicken Thigh
  • Uncooked Rice

Seasoning for the Chiken:

  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Pepper
  • Sesame Oil
  • Oyster Sauce

Here's how you cook your chicken rice:

  • Peel and smack the Ginger, Onions and Garlic to bring out the aroma
  • Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and season
  • Wash the rice and dump everything into the rice cooker, add water as you normally would when cooking plain rice and press cook
  • Voila! You've got lovely smelling chicken rice in about 20 minutes.

Tip: You can leave a little bit of skin on the chicken if you're not super health concious. It makes the rice a little bit more oily and fragrant. If you like the smell of sesame oil, you can sprinkle some into the cooker just before dishing out and serving.

Sorry no photos. I'm a busy mom, remember. You can cook this simple chicken rice dish when you're really pressed for time. Frying some green leavy vegetable and a quick egg dish to go along with it will give you a complete meal for your family.

  1. or just go to the chicken rice shop? :P

  2. ky,
    Hahaha. Thats more expensive mah and the effort required to get 2 kiddoes all dressed and ready to go out sometimes its simpler to just cook. :)

  3. looks like a lazy student chicken rice recipe as well.. haha.. i'll try that

  4. like claypot chic rice eh. Thanks for the tips ;)

  5. wtj,
    Hahaha. Yes, it should be called the Lazy Persons Chicken Rice.

    Oh you want claypot izzit? Very easy, just put in black soya sauce, "lap cheong", salted fish and if you fancy, crack an egg into it just before serving. Remove the ginger and go easy on the onion and garlic. Cooking method is the same. Just use your rice cooker. Very senang wan...

  6. heheh...this bears an uncanny resemblance to my mom's chic rice..:) except that she doesn't use oyster sauce, more of thick soy sauce...guess it'll work either way.

  7. shireen,
    The thick soy sauce makes it look darkish so if you prefer the "pak cham kai" style or look, go for oyster sauce but its really up to you. Hehe.
