Claypot Chicken Rice Recipe (without Claypot)

I am lazy by nature, very lazy.

If I were to choose something to describe my laziness, it’s probably snake. Yeah, I am kind of like a snake. I don’t like to move around too much, unless I really have to, for example: when I have to eat or when nature calls. My perfect way of spending time is just to sit around and do nothing. In my opinion, being idle is one of life’s greatest luxuries. Sitting around, lying about, curling up in a ball on the couch, in the bed, just do nothing. Well, throw in some day dreaming here and there…you get the idea.

But I feel lazier than usual recently. I must have been bitten by a giant lazy bug–I am lethargic, unmotivated, sluggish, and blah. My laziness has affected my daily rituals; I haven’t mopped my floor for two weeks, haven’t cleaned the kitchen countertop in the last three weeks, haven’t vacuumed since last month. (Yeah, my house will soon become a natural habitat for Spiderman as cobwebs are popping up everywhere.)

Perhaps it’s just the hot hot summer. The heat drains energy and vitality, plus summer beckons outdoor activities. So, I spend less time in the kitchen and more time outside having fun (which I should be)…

Salted Fish

I still cook, but I cheat a lot, such as this claypot chicken rice without claypot. I love claypot chicken rice but I am too lazy to cook it from scratch. So, for convenience purposes, I used rice cooker. Why not? Who has time to stand there in front of the stove and wait for eternity for the chicken rice to cook in the claypot while there is a do-it-all-by-itself rice cooker? Duh. I have better things to do outside of the kitchen.

I am going to enjoy this summer and take things slow. So be prepared to get one or two posts a week from me. Be rest assured, even though I am lazy, I never sacrifice taste or authenticity when it comes to my cooking.

OK, I just got lazy again, so I will have to share my claypot chicken rice recipe later. *wink*

    I have a question. to cook the rice, u add the seasonings to the rice and then do you add water since its being cooked in the rice cooker?

    ur website is so lovely.. i do miss being a malaysian now.

    • Well, rinse the rice like you are cooking regular steamed rice (meaning with water), then add the seasonings into the water and rice. The water will turn dark in color…does it make sense?

    Thanks for such a great recipe, I’ve been making this dish using your recipe for quite a few years now and I’ll be cooking it again tonight for me and my wife.

    The only problem is that when I go on my annual visit to Singapore and try this dish it always seems tasteless in comparison to what I’ve become used to!

    Hello Bee, I tried your recipe it was delicious. I have a recipe which i use to make clay pot chicken rice.

    I blend onions, garlic,lemongrass & ginger into paste.The chicken is then marinated with dark thick soya sauce with some white pepper.
    Half cook the rice and set aside.
    Heat pan in low heat and pour the paste into it, stir till you smell the fragrance and add the chicken.Add 1/2 cup of water and let chicken to cook, once the chicken is cook add the rice and let it cook, add water if necessary and accordingly. Add salt to taste.
    Chop some spring onions for garnishing.
