Dark Soy Sauce Chicken Rice

I just love this simple recipe to cook "all in 1 pot" dark soy sauce chicken with chinese sausages. There are days when we are really running after time and this easy to cook meal is the best for all in the family. This pot of rice will not be complete without the fried shallots and its nice aromatic oil. So remember to add the homemade fried shallots and its oil before serving.

This is the simpliest "all in 1 pot" chicken and chinese sausage rice as you do not need to stir fry the rice before cooking. The marinated chicken and chinese sausages are laid on top of the almost cook rice in the rice cooker and allow it to cook by itself. When the rice cooker button auto-switch to Ready, this chicken rice is ready to be served. Simple as that! Done within 40 minutes or less.

All you Need :
  • 1/2 chicken - chop into pieces
  • 3 chinese sausages - soak n peel off skin
  • 6 shallots/small onions - slice thinly
  • a spring of spring onion/scallion
  • 2 cups of rice

Simple Process : Serve 4 - 5

  1. Marinate the chopped chicken with 2 Tbs black soy sauce, chinese cooking wine, salt, pepper for 20 minutes
  2. Soak and peel the chinese sausages and cut into fine slices
  3. Wash the rice and cook with hot water in the rice cooker
  4. Around 10 minutes, the rice will be almost dry, lay the marinated chicken and chinese sausages on top of the rice, add in 1 Tbs thick dark soy sauce and let the rice cooker continue to cook the rice and the chicken for the balance 10 minutes.
  5. Keep the rice in the rice cooker for another 5 minutes, then ready to stir rice to mix well to ensure even color (all covered by black soy sauce).
  6. Serve with fried shallots and its oil, garnish with chopped spring onion

Fried Shallots - heat some oil over medium heat and fry sliced shallots till golden brown, dish out together with the oil for serving.

** Using hot water, we speed up the cooking time of the rice and you'll have nice grains of rice when cooked.

Enjoy this Simple and Easy to cook recipe....
