Rice cooker - Clay Pot Chicken Rice?
Clay pot chicken rice is one of the well known hawker delights in Malaysia. We never expected to have this dish in the menu of our packed lunches during our Great Kiwi Road trip. However, with Auntie Ah Lan traveling with us, anything is possible. Among the packed lunches we had on the road were clay pot chicken rice, sandwiches, noodles and fried rice. Ming Ray commented this clay pot chicken rice was the best packed lunch he had on the road. He even requested me to add in to his school lunch box menu when school reopened!
You might wonder how to do that while we were traveling on the road with limited utensils? I did mention that I packed a few cooking utensils with us on this road trip, but clay pot? No, of course not!
The clay pot chicken rice we shared below is a modified version using our magic rice cooker again. That being the case, the title above was a bit misleading then. But do rest assured that the taste of the chicken rice does not differ much from the clay pot version. J
This dish is easy and convenient to prepare. It is a great meal when you are lazy to cook but still yearn for a decent meal. You can even skip the stir fried part and just dump everything raw into rice cooker and cook everything in one pot. I used to cook this way to save the hassle of cleaning extra pots and pans. But this method is not recommended by Auntie Ah Lan as she claimed the rice would be tastier and more aromatic following the stir frying preparation.
