Hi,

I found this recipe in 'The Journal of a Girl Who Loves to Cook' blog (http://cookingismypassion.blogspot.com/). I have tried it a few times now and the result is delicious!

NOTE: Pls use microwave oven dish/container when using the recipe below.

Microwave Claypot Chicken Rice
1 cup rice
300ml water
1 tbsp chopped garlic
20gm salted fish
2-4 tbsp oil

Ingredients A:
250g chicken pieces
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp thick soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
15 g shredded ginger
4 pcs black mushroom - quartered

Method:
1. Wash the rice and soak in water for 10 minutes.
2. Cover the rice and cook for 10 mins on power medium.
3. In a microwave-safe dish, brown the garlic and oil together for 2-2.5 mins on power high. Then add the salted fish and cook for 0.5 to 1 minute on power high.
4. Add Ingredients A to the garlic oil & salted fish, and mix well.
5. Pour this mixture on top of the rice. Cover and cook for 5-6 mins on power medium. Let it stand for 10 mins and serve.

For this, use an earthern claypot to cook the rice.

By the way, have you seek her(Su Yin of the named blog) permission to lift her recipes and be posted here? I know she wouldn't mind. But its polite to ask first. island

Hi Gina,

Yes, Su Yin has given me her permission to use her recipe.

I tried the recipe the other night and it turned out really easy and delicious. I added half a chopped chinese sausage ('lap cheong') and garnished with some chopped spring onions before serving.

I didn't use an earthern pot though as I didn't have one but used a microwave rice cooker instead (bought from John Little years ago when I was still in Spore) and the result was just as good.

Regards,
Yvonne

I don't like salted fish. If I omit salted fish, does the dish taste the same?

HI Gina

I have a question on the claypot. I wanted to but one here at the weekend but found inside of them is glazed. Is that correct. Also do we prepare the pot in a special way for it to be used in cooking?

Winter here lah so would like some hearthwarming food!! Slurpp bawling tears

Hi Diana,

I didn't use salted fish for my first attempt and the result was still delicious, minus the aroma of the salted fish which I don't think you'll miss.. Very Happy

You could substitute the salted fish with half a chinese sausage (lap cheong) or bacon.

Cheers,
Yvonne
