Today I would like to share with you all a really simple yet fulfilling recipe. Idea for students like us who usually do not have much time to spend in the kitchen yet still craving for something better than a bowl of average instant noodle.
It is the Sesame Oil Chicken Rice!
Okay, let’s move on to the ingredients already:
- One debone chicken drumstick (that’s a video tutorial below)
- One cup of white rice
- One and a half spoon of sesame oil
- One and a half spoon of Shaw Xin Hua Diao Jiu (绍兴花雕酒) #
(# For those who practice alcohol-free diet, you can replace this with Maggi concentrated chicken stock. )
- Some sliced ginger (as much as you like)
- A small pinch of salt for flavoring
- Wash the white rice thoroughly, drain it and put aside.
- Slice the gingers and the drumstick meat into pieces.

- Heat the wok, add in sesame oil and gently fry the sliced ginger to golden brown. *
(* careful with the heat, as too hot of a temperature will turn the sesame oil bitter.)
- When the sliced ginger is ready, add in the drumstick meat and fry it until its skin turns slightly brown.
- Add in the salt and Shaw Xin Hua Diao Jiu/concentrated chicken stock and cook until the sauce slightly concentrate.
- Then, add in the rice and mix it thoroughly with the chicken and ginger.
- Finally, move all the ingredients to your rice cooker pot, add in water, and cook it as how you’ll usually prepare your rice.
- Serve it hot.
If you want to have a chewy version of chicken rice, try replace the white rice with glutinous rice (nasi pulut) instead!
Pay attention to the amount of rice and water you add-in, as glutinous rice does not expand nor absorb much water during cooking, more rice is needed to make a bowl of chicken rice. While the water needed is only 0.6 – 0.8 times of the rice or just enough to cover the rice.
