For the Rice

4 cups long grain rice

3 cloves sliced garlic

1 clove garlic

1 inch ginger

2 teaspoons sugar

Using a big pot, bring the water to the boil. Add the chicken, ginger and garlic into the boiling water. Do not cover the pot. Boil for about 2~3 minutes before turning off the heat and cover for approximately 15~20 minutes for it to cool. Repeat the boiling and cooling process the second time. Use a fork or chopstick to test the doness of the chicken. Once properly cooked, take the chicken out and place it in a bowl. Pour cool boiled water over the chicken to stop the cooking eventhough it has been removed from the heat. Mix the soy sauce and sesame oil in a small bowl. Brush the mixture on the chicken. Find a well ventilated spot and hang the chicken. Keep enough of the chicken stock for te rice and chili sauce to be used later.


The remainder chicken stock can be reboiled for another 10 minutes with the cut pieces of the chicken legs and wings. Season the chicken stock with 2 cups of the vegetables of your preference. Continue to simmer until cooked. Add salt and pepper to seaon. Add the scallions. Keep the stock warm

Preparing Rice

Wash and drain the long grain rice. Heat the oil in the rice cooker and saute the garlic and ginger until fragrant. Add the well drained rice and fry for another 3 minutes. Add the chicken stock, salt and sesame oil. Cook until all the liquid has been absorbed without closing the cover. Then cover the pot tightly and reduce the heat until it is cooked.

Preparing Chili sauce

Mix all ingredients in a food processor and blend. Add in the chicken stock and place in a sauce bowl.
