Frequently Asked Questions About Chicken Rice Cooked in a Rice Cooker

I do not have chicken stock. Can I use vegetable stock?

Vegetable stock can be used as well. Be sure to taste the stock and season accordingly for its flavor will be infused into the rice when it is cooking in the rice cooker with the chicken.

Do I have to use pre-baked chicken for this rice cooker recipe?

You can choose to cook your chicken from scratch. Be sure to cut the chicken into small pieces so that it will cook within 20 to 30 minutes, or by the time the rice is done. Marinate the chicken with sesame oil and black pepper and have it sit for about 20 minutes before cooking it. Also, be sure to place the chicken over the rice when cooking in the rice cooker.

Tips & Tricks to Prepare Rice Cooker Chicken

  1. Add more flavor: To add more flavor to the rice, stir-fry the uncooked rice in ginger, garlic, and onion before cooking it. In a pan, heat some oil and stir fry ginger, garlic, and onion until fragrant. Stir in the rice and cook for a minute until each grain of rice is coated in the oil. When the dish is cooking in the cooker, you can also throw in knotted pandan leaves and lemongrass. These will add a very subtle aroma to this chicken dish.
  2. Serving suggestion: Serve your chicken rice with a few slices of cucumber and tomato like the traditional dish.
  3. Make some chili sauce: A key component of every chicken rice dish is its chili. Make a simple chili sauce with fresh chili peppers, garlic, ginger, chicken stock, vinegar, and the juice of a few limes. Add in sugar and salt to taste. Throw in all the ingredients into a food processor and voila, you have a condiment to complement your dish.
