How to Make Stuffed Chicken Rice

  • Wash the chicken and rub some salt over it. Stuff the chicken with the above ingredients.
  • Boil water with 1 tsp of salt over high heat.
  • Add the chicken and cook uncovered until the water boils again, for 3 minutes. Then reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes (do not remove the lid throughout cooking).
  • Remove the chicken and immerse in a basin of cold water for 5 minutes. Reserve the liquid in which the chicken was boiled.
  • Transfer the chicken to a large plate and brush with sesame seed oil.
  • Allow the chicken to cool before cutting it into pieces. Arrange on a serving dish.
  • Garnish with cucumber, tomato and shallots.
  • For the rice: Wash the rice until the water runs clear. Drain.
  • Add the chicken stock, screw pine leaves, salt and MSG to the rice (in a rice cooker). Pour the oil over the rice and cook until done.
  • Loosen and fluff up the rice with a chopstick before serving.
  • For chilli & ginger sauce: Blend all the ingredients into a rough paste and serve as an accompaniment.
