One Pot Meal (Steamed Chinese Chicken Rice )

Steamed Chinese chicken rice is packed with flavour and mostly made in a clay pot, hence the name clay pot chicken rice, but I do not have a clay pot so I cook this dish in a basic non stick pan.
           It still tastes amazing and so comforting, the best part is that this is an easy one pot meal.
One of our favourite weekend lunch.
Such amazing flavours in there ,you got to try it
You may use any vegetable, but these are what I like in this dish
beans ~ carrot, celery and spinach

1 cup jasmine rice - wash and drain the rice
medium ginger cut in thin large pieces
4 garlic clove slit in half

1 tsp coarse five spice powder
small pinch sugar
pepper and salt to taste
mix of soy and chili sauce
2 tsp chicken stock powder

1 cup boneless chicken
Marination for chicken (marinate 1 hour)
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp oyster sauce
1 tsp rice vinegar
some crushed chili
1/2 tsp sesame oil
a pinch sugar and salt

In a large pan or wok add some sesame oil and saute the marinated chicken. Cook for 3/5 min

 Add in the veggies, I add the spinach later. Saute well for2/3 min then add in the five spice powder.

Keep the heat to medium and now add in the salt and sugar, by now the chicken will be half cooked. Add the rice and saute for 5 min the rice gets well coated by doing this.
Make sure to not break the rice.
 Add in the sauces and saute another min, also add in the spinach.

I am using 1 cup of rice so I added 2 1/2 cups water , adding 2 1/2 cup water makes the rice a bit mushy, if you like the grains separate add in only 2 cups water.
Chinese pot rice tastes great when it is mushy and sticky.
For more flavour add in stock powder.
Wait for a boil and then immediately turn the heat to low and cover the pan with a tight lid.
Cook for 15/20 min and it will be ready !
 Now your done !

Serve with a fried egg on top, the aroma and flavours will get you hooked once you try this recipe for sure. Enjoy !!
