Oct 19,2022 | Isle Provisions
Sesame Chicken is a popular dish both in Taiwan and Singapore. This dish is according to some, "warming" and nourishing. Why not make it into a one-pot rice dish that can be made at home with ease? Skip the long claypot rice queues at hawker centres and enjoy this simple dish at home.
Ingredients (for 2 moderately hungry persons):
*Cold-pressed black sesame oil,
*Taiwan soy sauce,
*Chicken ( pieces, we prefer the parts with skins and bones as they make the dish more flavourful)
*Rice, 2 cups,
*Organic dried Shiitake mushrooms ( soaked in warm water and then sliced)
*Chopped garlic, ginger slices,
*Sugar ( brown sugar if you wish), sea salt, pepper, water
Heat the black sesame oil in medium heat and sizzle the garlic, ginger and shiitake mushroom until fragrant
Soak uncooked rice.Add in the chicken pieces and stir fry until the skin turns brown. Add the soy sauce,sugar, salt, pepper and water just enough to cover the chicken and then simmer over low heat for 5-10mins.
Add the soaked rice to the rice cooker. Add the simmered chicken complete with the broth into the rice cooker and toss with the uncooked rice. Add water if required. Take note, the amount of liquid should be just sufficient for the amount of rice. Start the rice cooker.
After the rice cooker chimes, don't rush to open the rice cooker. Let the mixture inside sit for 5-10minutes more. When time is up, open rice cooker and serve immediately!
