ONE-POT Hainanese Chicken Rice
Enjoy the best silky fragrant chicken on rice with my one-pot Hainanese chicken rice recipe!
Chicken breast, chicken rice, Haianese chicken rice, Yellow rice
or mixed with soaked whole grain rice
minced, or dried lemongrass powder
Coarse sea salt
finely diced for garnish
Red pepper flakes
At least 4 hours before cooking, marinade chicken thigh with coarse sea salt and lemongrass
Fill ricecooker with rice and liquid to the 2-cup marking, start the ricecooker to start cooking
As liquid begins to boil in rice cooker, place marinated chicken over rice. Cover to continue cooking
When ricecooker finished cooking, let sit for 5 mins
Open lid, cut chicken into 1 cm-wide strips, place them back on top of rice along with any oil that is released on the cutting board
Garnish with scallions and red pepper flakes and serve with cucumber slices
Optional: add in finely diced ginger in chicken marinade for extra exotic flavor. This was omitted in mine because hubby is allergic to ginger!
