Rice cooker chicken rice

This is what I cooked for the weekend.  An easy super duper all-in-one dish accompanied with a vegetable soup on the side.  I was just too lazy to whip up any other dishes as the weather is so super hot and humid these days and my brain cells couldn't function properly.  So, as long as it can fill the stomach, it's all that matters!

The slices of red meat is sweet  'kwai fah yoke'.

If you're hard pressed for time, can consider this option for a quick and wholesome meal.

  1. o yes, this is kind of savoury rice dish I love too.

  2. This is great I love an easy super duper all-in-one dish! It certainly looks flavorful too!

  3. I cook this pretty often but I used Blessed Homemaker's recipe. Next time I will try yours. What is 'Kwai Fah yoke'?

    1. It's a piece of flat sweet meat, popular during CNY. You can substitute with Chinese sausages. You can see it in the above picture.

  4. Hi

    Will your rice stick to the side and base of the rice cooker? I always scope up about more than a quarter bowl at the end of the day. May I know how to pretend this from happening. Thanks

    1. I'm using a non-stick rice cooker, so I don't encounter that problem.

  5. Cheah, Fully agreed with you. Simple and delicious. Was thinking about cooking this dish,too. Must be delicious with so much 'liao'.

    1. Yes, it's delicious, more so with some chopped chilli padi.

  6. I can eat this any time. The look already makes me drool :D

    1. I make this quite often, sometimes just change the ingredients. Non-greasy kitchen, that's what I like!

  7. Ah yes... this is one super-duper easy dish that I cook occasionally. The only difference is I use Chinese sausages instead of 'Kwai Fah Yoke'.

    1. Yes,I use Chinese sausages too sometimes. Easy and quick meal.

    1. Yes the heat is getting on my nerves. Adding in salted fish is more fragrant but unfortunately not appreciated amongst my family members.

  10. Looks wonderful! I must get a rice cooker now that we're back in Asia. Then I can try this recipe :)

    1. You should but try to get one with a ceramic pot not a non-stick pot.
