How to make it

  • Clean chicken, pat dry with kitchen towels; prepare a few slices of ginger.
  • Massage and rub whole chicken inside out with salt, chicken stock powder and coat with sesame oil, and then set aside for at least an hour.
  • Stuff 2 stalks of spring onion and 2 pieces of ginger into chicken cavity, use skewer to seal the opening.
  • Pour 2 tbsp of cooking oil into rice cooker, add slices of ginger, and place the seasoned chicken with belly facing down in the rice cooker.
  • Switch on the rice cooker and press the cook button, let it cook until the cook button automatically pops up. Test on doneness using skewer, if juice runs clear, chicken is ready else press down the cook button and let it cook again. ( I repeat two times before the chicken is cooked)
  • Switch off the power and let the chicken continue to bake in the rice cooker for 5 minutes before remove from rice cooker.
  • Remove chicken from rice cooker and cut into pieces, pour out the chicken juice and drizzle on the chicken and serve.

    Wow, I didn't know you can use a rice cooker for chicken. Kudos for originality! I might very well try this one day but all that ginger will have to be replaced with something else.
