This recipe was created for Microwave ovens. If you want to use the wok or steamer, read notes below.



Serves 2 persons
Ingredients
1 cup of glutinous rice
1 pc of boneless chicken thigh with skin(diced)
4 pcs preserved chinese mushrooms(soften in water, cut into quarters)
3 tbsp onion oil(or corn oil)

seasoning to be mixed together
3 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp sesame oil
120 ml water

Method
1. Soak rice in tap water for at least 4 hours. Wash and drain, set aside.
2. Heat up wok with onion oil and add mushrooms to fry.
3. Add chicken and seasonings to fry over high heat for 1 min.
4. Remove mushroom and semi cooked chicken leaving the sauce behind.
5. Add rice and fry till the sauce dries up.
6. Arrange chicken and mushrooms on a small bowl, piled up with rice.
7. Spray the top of the rice with water
8. Microwave on HIGH (100%) for 5 mins.
9. Over turn bowl on a plate and serve warm.

Notes on steaming using wok or steamer
1. Steam over high heat for 25 mins.

Very Important Notes
When using this with Microwave ovens, do not use aluminium disposal cups. use only glassware or stone/earthern ware.

You can use ramekins(used for making Souffle) for this.

When using with Microwave ovens, remember to add a bit more water. Because the oven will evaporate every drop of water.

When you do it by steaming, water vapour is trapped inside the wok, under the cover. the water vapour will turn into water again and moisten the rice. Thus, with old fashioned steaming, you do not need to add water.

I have a MW but no button to choose high or low. Can only turn the duration you want to cook.
Lousy MW, it was redeem from Shell station 6 years back. So i better stick to the traditional method. Thanks. Very Happy

Gina,

What do you think if I put everything in in small bowls and keep them in the fridge, when ready to eat, then I steam them. Do you think it will last?

you are supposed to steam(cook) it, then store in the fridge. uncooked meat, rice will turn rock hard and takes a longer time to steam. and steaming it longer will make the chicken over cooked.

if you microwave it, need to add a bit more water.
ideally to soak the rice overnight.

I've made this a couple times Smile Really good, esp when I'm homesick. Haha. I tend to make it in advance (cooking it too) then put in the fridge... then nuke it again when I want to eat it. Smile YUM.


Time to go make another batch...

Really a great recipe put it in simple way. Going to do it soon.
I am thinking the bowls of rice can be cooked ahead and reheat for breakfast.
Thanks for sharing.
